Fork Upgrade

Postby lackofgrip » Sun Mar 31, 2013 10:20 am

Right my problem is that I want to replace my damaged forks on my cube, they are 1"1/8 - 1"1/2

The current steerer tube is 300mm, I was wondering if anywhere do longer steerer tubes?

The slightly longer steerer tube would allow me to lift the handlebars and flip the stem straight (purely for vanity) :mrgreen: :oops:

All new forks come with a really long steerer tube (way over 300mm - my Enve 2.0's came at 350mm) - you can then cut it down to length to suit.

How high are your bars though? My bikes have a steerer tube length of 208mm on a 54cm frame.

enve forks are nice, a few months back i replaced my rather flexy forks with enve 2.0, really improved cornering

they do tapered in the size you want...

steerer is 350mm, note the maximum 40mm stack height for spacers

btw, vanity is all well and good, but i'm not sure added spacers would look better than an angled stem
my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny
