    Steerer Extention, Replacement, or just screwed???

    I'm doing a rebuild on a 1st generation Cannondale Beast of the East. After searching high and low for a correct 1" steerer Pepperoni fork, I was only able to find one with the steerer about an inch too short.

    Since I am neither an engineer nor a frame builder. I have tried to research the best method to make this fork work. It is an aluminum fork with a steel steerer. I am not planning on doing anything more on this bike than concrete or gravel trails.

    What would be my best course of action? Having an extension pinned on with an internal "sleeve"? Or having a machinist remove and replace the old steerer?

    I would love to not have to worry about this by getting the right sized fork. But, it too, me 17 months just to find a Pepperoni with a 1" steerer. They were not and still are not very common.

    This can be done well as shown in this YouTube video:

    That looks like the way to go. Unfortunately, I do not have a lathe. I will definitely pass this on to my machinist.
