Looking for a steel fork to put on a Soma Rush. I want to do barspins, the Soma has a 1 inch steer tube so I know its gonna be hard to find. Is there any way to put a 1 1/8 inch fork on a 1"? Do your thing internet.

If the steerer tube will fit through the head tube you can make (have made) adapters to take the bigger headset, these are stainless steel ones I had machined at my local machine shop.

I'm trying to find some rigid freestyle forks for my Peugeot 501 at the moment and its a nightmare. RJ the bike guy has some videos about this subject on youtube.

Basically its not possible to use 1 1/8 steerer fork on a 1" head tube because once the headset cups are in place it just wont fit.

Struggling to find some decent rigid forks with a 1" steerer, they are very rare and expensive. If you find any let me know!

It was possible in my case because the head tube had extra material above and below to take the cups I had made, and I could live with the fact that front was lifted by adding the cups,

Thats cool that you got it working. I've been looking tonight and apparently there is a way where you have to ream out the inside of the head tube to fit a larger headset cup like from a bmx. Maybe i'll try this. Most of the parts I want to use are bmx parts anyway so it'll make my life easier.
