Deda zero stem with carbon steerer?(3 posts)

Deda zero stem with carbon steerer?Rich

I have read differing views on whether a Deda Zero stem should be used with a carbon steerer fork due to the expander bolt type fitting. Does anybody have any experience with a similar set up?

On a 1 1/8" fork, you cannot use the Zero, on a 1", you can, because the steel shim distributes the load of the expander bolt more evenly.

Thanks, this now makes perfect sense.
