Help with threaded stem
#1
I brought a new 1" threaded rigid fork to replace old one. The Old fork tube diameter is 22.2mm, however I've just found out the new one has tube diameter of 21.1mm therefore my stem doesn't fit into the forks. Is there any way around this or do I need either a new stem or new set of forks again. I can return the forks as I I've scratched them when fitting the crown raceSad thanks. They are both 1", it's annoying as I assumed there was only one type of 1" threaded fork. Apparently the 21.1mm is rare these days and most 1" forks use 22.2. Thanks
