long threaded fork with spacers
A friends bike got awfully vandalized, and her fork was DOA. She has a peculuar [large] size old fuji and had no luck finding a replacement fork with the right size tube. So we got her one that was too long, and tapped another cm of threads into it. I assumed we'd then cut a little off the top, though my only saw guide is threadless (I thought that likely to still be okay figuring I could bevel the top edge as needed for it's not an important spot to have actual threading should it even have the top ring of thread damaged from the guide in the first place) however, she opted to use spacers instead. Other then it being odd to have spacers on a threaded, any reason that isn't a decent option?
