    Do new forks come with star nut??

    This may sound like a dumb question, but do new forks come with the star nut (star-fangled nut) for the head set to attach to the steer tube? I'm about to order a new RS Reba Race and want ensure that I order everything that I will need for the install. Thanks...

    Typically forks do not come with a star nut. New headsets do, though. Your LBS should have a new star nut for you to shove in there.

    Check your local LBS for a star nut. Every fork I've ever bought has never come with one. They should have one and often times if you do much business with them, they will put it in for you too free of charge.

    You will also most likely need the shop to cut the steerer tube to the correct length for your frame. They can also then put in the star nut.

    Star nuts typically are only good for one use. You'll mangle the old one trying to pull it out. Just go to a shop. They'll probably give you a new one for free.
