Provides more ground clearance than previously which it needed and really keeps that front end planted :cool:

Hi there, looks great, I've been thinking of doing this to my ESommet. What headset are you running? As it's a straight steerer tube, have you fitted a reducer to make it fit?

Yes had to purchase the wider spacer for the base of the steer tube, it was a bit of a sod to fit but patience is key I just kept tapping it on with a large ring spanner until flush. Beware you will need a new front wheel or spindle as it’s a 20mm on the boxer forks so plan for that also, that was very unexpected when fitting.

Thanks Loppy Lou, I've found a reducer from Hope, just need to find a cheap boxxer now. Yes, front hub needs to change also, thanks for the heads up, much appreciated.
