Couldn't you just get forks without the bearing race as part of the fork and just press on your own race?

I cant seem to find forks w/out bearing races that don't "suck" as in low quality.

I seek progression, not perfection.

So I found the Rant fork and The Fiction Troop fork don't come with integrated bearing races, idk about the quality but it can't be too bad there both chromoly and I've been riding stock non chromoly forks for a while and are fine except where I fucked up grinding lol.

Fit Blade v2 forks have the option for chrome & matte black to come without the bearing race.

Note: Only compatible with integrated headsets. Forks without the integrated race have a large diameter steerer tube near the fork crown and will not fit through most standard headsets.

I thought Blades too but then I saw this.

"Will not fit through most"

so it might still fit, call danscomp and ask 'em. Although it should, and if it doesn't, all you'll need is a standard bearing race that will fit it and a bike shop should have something like that laying around, my shop has millions of them laying around

You think they make races that would fit a larger diameter steer tube?

They should, in the description it says "will not fit through most"

so there should still be some that will fit, given that information

At this point, the sti conversion seems like the best.option until I get a new frame.

If I were you, I'd just do that honestly. then you can use the bearings, compression piece & dust cover when you get a new frame so you aren't spending more money on another headset

Yeah probably a good idea.

I am thinking of a black eye park pro frame in 20.5, once I kill the bearings in that headset, move on to that sexy kink ceramic headset.
