Default Re: how to lengthen steerer tube on a bicycle

Yep i have done it a couple of times. What i did was use another bike fork and cut the fork tube off it and welded it together with a sleve like yours. Left a 1/8" gap for weld but i cross drilled mine were the sleve is and roseset welded the hole shut. Did the same to shroten a girls bike fork,cut a section out and welded it back togther..............Curt

PS one should put the bottom bearing rase on it first before welding.
