Installation Details

Out of the box this fork will not fit the surron steer tube with the 1" tall roller bearing adapter that comes on the OEM surron.  Swapping your upper headset to a Cane Creek 40 which reduces the steer tube length by approximately 1/2" will allow it to fit.  It his highly recommended you take this to your local bike shop for proper installation!! Many of the aftermarket forks we see on bikes that come through our shop were not installed properly and have caused damage to customers bikes.  Please do not install this fork if you are not an experienced bike builder.
