Hi All

i have my eye on a C40 that looks like a gen 1 with a steel fork and a quill stem

is it possible to change this to a carbon star fork with an A headset?

thanks

john

Yup. Just need a 1" aheadset, not 1 1/8". The frame didn't change. If buying used, make sure the fork has enough steerer to clear head tube, headset, any spacers, and of course the stack of the stem.
