Hi, would this fit with my Trialtech sport lite 20í fork, Trialtech sport forged high rise stem, and the Hope headset cups? Also what option should I order (1 1/8 or 1.5) ? Thanks

Hi Sab!
To make sure the Headlock will fit, you'll need to measure your steerer tube. If you measure it from the crown race to the top of the steerer that'll give you an idea. For the headlock to fit, you need your steerer to be in the 205-250mm range.
If it falls within that range, you'd need the 1 1/8" Standard size.

Hi, I saw that Yuki Kishi's Inspired Flow 20" has the Inspired Headlock V2, but the Inspired Flow 20" usually comes with a steel fork. Therefore, I was wondering how he was able to fit the headlock, since your website says they're only compatible with the alloy forks, not the steel ones. Please let me know; I'd love to have one of these when they become in stock on my Inspired Flow 24" if possible! Thanks, Stephen Tan

Hi Stephen!
Sometimes Inspired's frame kits come with forks that are longer than the ones that are supplied with the bikes. Quite often this is the case so riders can choose the length of fork required if they're creating a custom build, whereas Inspired will set the steerer length to be correct for the complete builds they're making.
As a result, it could be that Yuki received a frame kit from Inspired rather than the complete bike, meaning his steerer tube may have been long enough to accept one of the Headlocks.
If your steerer is too short (as it would be on a complete Flow 24"), you can modify the Headlocks to work by cutting down the main rod, drilling it and then tapping it to have the correct thread for the preload bolt, but if you've got steel forks on your bike an easier solution would be the Gusset Hollow Star Nut Kit. That will allow you to route your front brake cable through your steerer tube and achieve a similar result to the Inspired Headlock.
If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask!

Does this work on suspension forks? I have a Manitou Circus fork with a tapered steerer tube and 100 millimeters of travel. I have been using a product similar to this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003UWLVY4 and over time it cut the brake cable. Will the Inspired Headlock cut the cable if I use it with a suspension fork?

Hi Peter!
The Inspired Headlock has a nicely shaped lower wedge so you shouldn't have any problems with the hose catching/rubbing.
To check if it will fit your forks, you'll need to measure your steerer tube length from your crown race to the tip of the steerer (not from the underside of the fork crown). If this is 205-250mm long this headlock will work fine.

Hi, will this top cap fit on the trialtech sport forged high rise stem I purchased from here? I have inspired flow forks so no worry there just the top cap as itís a very narrow stem top. Thanks

Hi Andrew!
This Headlock will fit the Trialtech stem fine. It was designed to work with the Trialtech High Rise stems fitted to the Flow and Flow Plus bikes so you shouldn't have any issues.
