Cannondale steerer tube

5 posts in this topic

Hi so I have a pair of cannondale ultra forks with head shock I was wondering if it’s possible to press out the steerer tube and press in a standard 1 1/8 steerer. Here’s how it is currently any thoughts?

Continually amazed by all the stuff I still manage to not know ever existed!

I would imagine not, to be honest.

Yeah my guess would be a nope too. Don't know for sure but gut feeling would be that the fork legs are welded to the steerer which is formed and milled or whatever above the crown race.

I also doubt you can remove / refit the steerer, but I'd have thought cutting the headshox one and welding a normal one in would work fine.

So I had a look and compared them to a some fattys. Neither appear to be welded the fattys are drilled and pinned with hollow pins in the yoke and when you look in there is a line where the bottom of the steerer tube and the fork yoke meet. Actually would they be able to weld the steel steerer to ally forks? When looking and getting the verniers out the hole in the fork yoke on the fattys was 26mm and on the ultras it was 28mm so if it can be done the new steerer would need to be flaired out at the bottom to suit. Or an aluminium one machined. Or would a steel one with a knurled end be an option 

hopefully these photos are clear enough to see what I mean
