    so i am finally going to fork over the money for a fu manchu so i can get dem bahh spinzz.

    got a quick q for yall.

    Does the headtube size on your bike effect what forks you put in? for example, if you want to change fork sizes ie 1" to 1-1/8" do you need a whole new frame or just a new headset?

    thanks in advance

    You CANNOT put that fork on your Kilo TT frame. Your frame has 1" headtube, so you cannot fit a 1 1/8" steerer tube into it.

    Stop being a complete moron for christ sakes.

    A shim that REMOVES metal from the inside of your headtube so you can fit a LARGER DIAMETER tube into a SMALLER DIAMETER tube? Yeah.

    yes. a reverse headset (aka polish threading) would be necessary...along with the negative shim. this will guarantee bar spins.

    About time you show up! Where you been on these years? We all just figured you fucked off many years ago when this world started turning to shit. Everyone said you would come back… I just did not think it would be online, when you finally did.
