If you've cut down a steer tube (carbon or alloy) and still have the off cut can I have it?
I need at least 20mm but will take any length over that
Got a whole pair of forks for free in sw11
What you making .is it a shim.
Thanks, if I’ve not got anything by the weekend I’ll grab these if I may.
I need to add ~20mm to a steer tube for a total stack height of 75mm. Have got a 90mm expander plug that I’m guessing would hold an additional 20mm piece as well quite firmly
Think safety 1st.
thanks to @Jeromeo I got some forks I could scavenge!
extended steerer by 15mm as below using 90mm expander bung...
I think this is safe...as safe as a quil stem, plus has the added safety of the retainer bolt on the stem I'm using...a tall stack stem with a single bolt at the bottom, which will clamp on the original steerer anyway (so not stem bolt on the piece of extended steer tube).
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.
