I am trying to swap an 00 Manitou Mars with a 00 Marzocchi Bomber. The Mars steerer tube is about 1 inch too short. Can steerer tubes on forks be changed and/or what options exist for extending the height by another 1-1.5 inches?
Thanks

on modern forks the only way to fix this is to get a new steerer pressed in to the fork, this requires sending them back to the fork manufacturer.

I have seen the results first hand of someone who has tried this.... Not good at all. Have a new steer pressed in.
