Default Re: Need help finding bikes with 1 1/8 steer tubes

Are you talking outside diameter, or headset size? Are you looking threaded or threadless?

Most mountain bikes would take a 1 1/8 HEADSET while a cruiser would use a 1 inch headset-

Most shock forks are usually 1 1/8 steer tubes, but they CAN be found in 1 inch with some looking- I have one on my cruiser frame-
The other consideration of course is the length of the steer tube and the length of the steer tube on the fork- especially on threaded, this has to match, although a longer fork steer tube can be hacked down if it has enough thread.
