swapping old style stem to new style stem? post #1
If you can guess by my name, i have an old school mongoose.

It has old school stem and old school forks. if you dont know what an old school stem is, it basicaly a normal stem, but with an intergrated pipe that goes into a short fork, and tightens by a weird thing i cant explain.

any way, how can i swap those parts to newer parts? would u have to change the headset as well? thanks

i'm pretty sure you dont have to change out the headseat, but mine are unsealed and making a funky noise so i might as well change those out too.

i fink if youre changing the fork this wil happen i fink:
1 the headtube is too small (1 inch instead of 1 1/8 inch)
2 your headset is also too small (1 inch instead of 1 1/8 inch)
3 and you have to got changing forks they are also 1 inch instead of 1 1/8 inch
