    I rode it at the ski slopes for a day and it didn't come off once, the front derailleur seemed to hold it on. I have the inner and 2nd ring on, kept the granny gear for climbing since this is my do it all bike. I did rock gardens and fast runs all day and it stayed on perfectly. We will see.

    So... all the fuss about keeping the Domain and finding a frame with a 1.5 headtube... and you install a Travis triple with a 1 1/8 steer tube anyways.

    Why did you replace the Domain? It would've taken 20 bucks and 20 minutes to fix what you broke.

    The threads of the lowers where the shaft bolt was got stripped out... Broken shaft bolt and stripped lowers = 20 dollar fix? Please enlighten me

    It's called a helicoil and it would have costed less than 20 bucks.

    The lowers have no threads. Duh. And I said this in your other thread too.

    The shaft wasn't broken... only the bolt... because you tried to turn the bolt rather than the 2mm rebound.

    Send the fork to me. If I can't fix it for less than 20 bucks in parts, I'll pay for it. If I can... you let me keep the fork.

    The video that YOU found tells you to hit the bolt while it's partially unthreaded to unseat the shaft from the lowers. If the lowers are threaded, that would destroy the threads. Use some common sense.

    ONE person told you the threads in the lowers stripped. They are obviously wrong.

    Bout time you got it together, looks like I missed your domain issue thread, at least give the travis a try, you might like it.

    Will is spot on in this, if the lowers where threaded, when you smack the bolt with a hammer to dislodge the lowers, it would snap em. Honestly, for $20 or there about, heck even if its 50, you can repair the Domain, and have a spare fork, or you can sell it and get some cash for some new parts

    Nice man! Congrats on building up a pretty sick little bike! Well not really little, but you get my point! Got to give us a ride report.

    Ohh and dude,... you have got to learn, and I am sure you will, that there are a few people on this forum that do not try to f*ck with people and genuinely want to help. These guys have a wealth of knowledge and have no problem sharing it with you, hell even guiding you through it. XSL_Will and Nick_M2R are an example of the guys I am talking about. There are many others, but these two are right here in your thread, offering advice.

    I say contact Will via PMs, ask nicely if he can explaing how to fix your Domain, then fix that sum bytch. It sounds easy and can either grant you a back-up fork or net you some cash for parts. Don't be so stubborn, don't be afraid to ask for advice, and don't feel bad for looking for a second opinion. Never listen to just one person on these forums, it can get you in trouble.
