Basically, I have a Giant Defy 4 (U.K version) with a steel fork and want to buy a carbon fork as an upgrade. I've had trouble finding Defy Carbon forks, so decided (if possible) to get a fork which isn't in Giants 1 1/8" - 1 1/4" bearings Overdrive size i.e 1 1/8".

Question is, is it possible to put a headset reducer on a 1 1/8" fork to make it fit my Defys' 1 1/8" - 1 1/4" size?

If not, is there ANY carbon fork which can take headset reducers to fit my Defy?

Would headset reducers be okay too, as in no ratlling from looseness when riding?

Also, is there any carbon fork (Chinese makes like Hong Fu etc.) that comes in 1 1/8" - 1 1/4" bearings size?

I would really appreciate any feed back from you.

Thanks.

Kinetic.
