Does anyone know of a frame builder capable / willing to replace the head tube on a Pugsley?
It's an interesting idea, but there's a huge difference in length between a Bluto and the Surly fork, so there's bit more to this than meets the eye first up.Thanks for the replies, I am trying to figure out how I can keep my Alfine, and run a Bluto. Buying a new frame, unless it is custom, won't do it. I will contact Bilenky, as they are relatively close.
I missed your reply, this is an interesting idea...I will try to find someone locally to do it.I think it will be easier to "Steer down" from the tapered steer tube to a 1 1/8" is not super easy but a competent machine shop can make you a new steer tube out of 7075 and install it on the Bluto triple clamp.
Again just a alternative..
