    New question here. 2005 Raleigh Ram XT headtube size

    I'm looking at getting a Raleigh Ram XT 3500 and would like to know beforehand if my old fork will fit it. What is the measurement on the headtube-height of this bike? Also, what kind of headset is it?

    1.5 if it's a 2005. They have reducer cups or headsets to convert to 11/8 though. I love that bike!

    The headtube is 1.5 but it comes with the Orbit Z headset which is 1.125, so most likely you will not have any problems fitting your fork.
