Bought a new rigid disc fork, which I guess is for a mountain bike setup, and am putting it onto a frame which has a integrated headset. The crown of the fork is wider than the headtube when it sits on it, what do I need to do or buy to make it more flush?
A new fork.
There’s not much you can do.
I think @Hulsroy has a frame with an integrated headtube that he pressed a cup into to use a tapered fork but I don’t know that really helps you here.
Sorted it (sort of). Just changed the crown race to a integrated type crown race and the head tube sits more flush. The fork crown does protrude about 1mm out from the head tube around, no biggy though.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
