|ATM I have a 1 1/8th threaded headset and I want to get rid of it and get a threadless headset but the problem is the forks I want to put on are 1". So I want to know what would be better making my headtube smaller so I can put a new 1" headset on or getting a 1 1/8" Headset and getting a adaptor for my smaller steerer tube. Also Which companys make these adaptors? ALso do any companys make a HEadset thats 1" which will fit a 1 1/8" size headtube?|

|Problem Solvers is a company that makes various adapters and spacers for bicycles. They make a reducer that will allow the use of a 1" headset on your 1 1/8" head tube. The QBP part number is HD9901. I'd expect to pay about $25.00 to $30.00 for the adapters at an LBS.|

|... also note that Chris King makes a devolution headset that allows you to run a 1" steerer in one of their 1 1/8" headsets... If you had a mind to replace your headset, this might be an option.
I've used both the devolution and the Problem Solver solutions with good success.
