So I've just bought my amazing Harry Quinn but the headset was shot,and have just been told that nothing will fit it as the old head set was short stacked and headsets are much taller now. I've been told that a chris king gripnut headset will fit but £££ or a Ritchey Logic but cant find one in UK thats threaded. Any one know of any others that might fit? Its 1" threaded. I've heard a few people have had this problem too.
p.s. don't want to replace the original forks
Had same problem with my gf's Merckx. Tange Levin is cheap (12 quid or summat) and has a short stack height (33mm). It's not a pretty thing though, FWIW.
Beyond that, its either persuade a builder to braze on a new steerer / steerer extension, or splash for a new fork. Or the Chris King.
Rob? I've got an assortment of randoms...
