Caad 10 - Regulard 1 1/8 Fork ?

Would it be possible to retrofit a regular 1 1/8in EC90 SLX to replace the original 1 1/8 - 1.25 fork on a Caad10 ?

Thanks
Eric

I can't imagine how a regular 1 1/8 could sit in that adapter. :noidea:

I think it would be ideal if you could stay away from adaptors and work with conversion headset

It is possible, but why would you want that?
Because the EC90 slx is lightweight an the original is heavy?

The Easton fork is one of the most flexible forks around, it would destroy the frontend stiffness of the bike!

Wow that's nice !

Solved my problem ! :beerchug: :beerchug: :beerchug:
If other people need one of those things, the part number is IS47/30. It's a new product CaneCreek told me (they are quick to reply e-mails) and you would need to order it from them directly.

I have a quite light EC90 SLX @265gr with cut steerer. I am quite light myself and would like to keep using that fork if possible. To be honest I've never found it noodly.

The Caad10 fork is a great fork and is designed to work with the frame. Why would you want to jeopordize the handling with a noodle. Just saying

Could always use a fork from an EVO.
