That looks super promising as it promises to eliminate the crown race ‘cracking’ noise I currently experience. However, the fact that only one shop in Germany is authorized to install the new steerer would likely make it cost prohibitive with shipping to / from Canada.
I also wonder about the viability of pressing out the old steerer and pressing / bonding in a new one. Without knowing the exact engineering behind the original steerer assembly process I wonder what the chances of the crown casting being damaged, weakened or otherwise compromised during the process. I’m not sure I’ve heard of anyone else doing something like this.
Still a really cool idea. Anyone have an idea what a Fox 36 CSU is worth in Germany? Since I’ve got scratches on one stanchion already, maybe I could get these Lemonshox guys to supply a new CSU with this steerer already pressed in and save shipping one way.
