Default Re: 4 stroke frame suggestion

I have a cantilever beach cruiser and also am having a difficult time finding suspension forks of decent quality with a 1" steerer. I believe RST is the only company to offer separate steerer and fork. has a few RST forks and steerers. I was curious if anyone knew the process for installing a steerer? I have read that to remove a steerer requires a 4-6 ton press, but what about installation. I was wondering if its possible to inslall at home with maybe a vise a mallet. If not, do bike shops generally have the ability to install one.

i would also like a frame with a steering wheel tube that is largest enough to fit larger mountain bike size shocks and tires.

Ive heard good things about the worksman frames, but not quite sure if they will fit the bigger four stroke motor or bigger shocks.

if you guys can shed some light on my best options and share your experience it would be much appreciated.


Im not sure if this will exactly answer you question, but post #31 goes over bike options, which was what I was asking about within this thread:

I found the info. veeery helpful.

Good luck with your build!
