does anyone know of a headset or an adapter that will allow me to use a fork with a 1" steerer tube on a frame that has a 1&1/8 head tube? i've heard that such an item does exist, but i havent been able to find it anywhere or find out what manufacturer makes such an item. any info would be much appreciated.

... OBP makes a shim system that's available from virtually any LBS in the US...

I've used both the CK Devolution and the shims with great success (the CK alternative requires either a CK headset (Devo costs about $30 UDS on it's own) or a brand new CK... shims should work with virtually any contemporary headset).

Be the bike.
