    New question here. Headtube reducer question

    I've got an Airborne Taka with a 1.5 inch headtube. The stock fork it came with has a 1 1/8inch steeretube. Assuming Airborne provided no way to install the fork in the 1.5 inch headtube, would a reducer be all I need to buy? Would I need to buy a new 1 1/8 inch headset to fit in the reducer, or can I just slide the fork right into the reducer? Thanks.

    yes mate,,, all you need is a reducer headset,,,, i used the chris king devolution when i built up my bike,, am not to impressed with it to be honest as it keeps coming loose, apparantly it's quite a common fault on this head set. if i was to do it again i would probably go for a cane creek reducer,
