    Threadless fork question

    Can I use a non-integrated (threadless) fork with an integrated headset? Are there any special precautions doing so? Thanks!!!

    Is there anything special I need to do so that the steering tube "looks" normal at the junction at the fork?

    Functionally, not a problem, but it may look funky as your non-integrated fork doesn not have that wide crown area which comes up flush with the head tube.

    They usually look a lot better the other way around........an integrated fork mated to a conventional non-integrated frame/head tube.
