finally broke down and got a new fork, new stem and a threadless headset. so far i really like the set up but....
my reynolds pro fork has a small hole on the inside of both fork legs. is this normal?
and also to get my bars to the right height i had to put 1 1/2" of spacers. reynolds say to only put on 1" on my 1" steerer. am i going to pay for this? i weigh 150. all these spacers look silly with my 90cm stem. any other ways to rise the bars up without all these spacers?
again thanks for your help!

|part of the forming process. You can probably locate an online customer service number for Reynolds if you want to ask them.
You can get the rise with a riser STEM.

|I believe The holes are from the manufacturing. They are on mine also. I would get rid of the spacers and get a riser stem. The Pro uses a carbon steerer that may not be as strong as a steel one on the Reynolds comp. . Some riders have complained that the pro has some flex in the steerer, I have not found that to be the case.|

|the holes are there to allow for the escape of gasses which build up during the manufacturing process. I believe you will find similar holes on just about every fork although the positions will vary depending on the make. Of course, I could be wrong.|
