First Look: ShockTune is a Free Suspension Setup App
@mattmatthew: see? This is what I love about throwing my stupid ideas out here. Somebody will grab them, and come up with a better (ahem... and plausible!) solution in no time!!! Having so many people from the industrial sector riding bikes and also participating here is amazing.

@getsomesy: (cough, cough, boost spacing... cough, cough, 15mm front axles... cough cough, 20MM BOOST AXLES!!!). The Industry™ doesn't care for what we like. Without going too technical, we *could* have a way of running our actual stems with my idea of polygonal steerers. Since the conforming/shaping of the steerer would mean its effective diameter would be less than 28.6mm, we could run an adapter shim, consisting of six semi-circular sections, which would bring the actual steerer diameter to 1-⅛. Once you are ready to jump shark and buy a new HexHead™ (see what I did there?) stem/headset, you'd simply take off the adapter shim and mount the new components to your HedHead™ equipped fork. Or The Industry™ could simple etch a couple marks on the last 10-15 cm of the steerer tube and we could call the day off :-P.

@nwmlarge: You could always cold press the hexagonal part of the steerer AFTER pressing it into the crown. It'd mean adding a way to hold the CSU in a still manner and then pushing the upper part (let's say the upper 10-15 cm) into a cold forging press.

@heavyp: they are surely already preparing the papers to sue me for disclosing their newly devised non-round steerer & seatpost combo... I can hear their lawyers creeping up to me from the depths of hell...

@nfontanella: I haven't seen anyone complaining about what you said with dual crown forks and direct mount stems...

They should just change their name to "Say Aaaah-bbey", as in what a dentist would tell before vandalizing your mouth. And the procedure is equally expensive.

@shrockie: I want to patent my idea of an hexagonal upper section of the steerer. It would be a minor nuance for the manufacturers, but a helluva help for us users. The same applies to the seatpost/seat tube. Why are we still using round sections there? Imagine being able to set your saddle and stem straight in a blink. Also, the polygonal section would increase strength in the desired direction.
