Default Re: head tube replace

Here one more:

how to: 1" threaded frame with 1 1/8" forks

Sorry, looks like this only works on BMX or old USA cruiser frames:
It (sort of) works with BMX bikes because BMX 1" is old standard American 1"
(think Schwinn beach cruiser) not Euro 1" (derived from road bikes)
which is what mtn. bike 1" HT are based on.
The American 1" is about 1mm smaller than an 1 1/8 cup so on some frames
you could actually machine the HT to make it 1 1/8".
