    Steerer threading in NYC?

    Looking for a shop or machinist that would be willing to cut down a steerer and thread it for me. Any ideas?

    Is it already a threaded steerer you need shortened and have the threads extended or a threadless steerer you want to thread from scratch?

    If the later, you will have trouble finding any shop that will take on this project. There was an extensive thread on just this topic a couple of days ago so a search or scroll through the last few pages should find it.

    I'll do it for you. I'm in Mount Vernon, just a short walk from Metro North or a longer walk from the White Plains Road Subway terminus. Email me your phone number at info@"the website under my signature" if you're interested & I call to discuss.

    OK. based on that, I'll also assume it's already a threaded steerer so extending the threads isn't a big problem. Just check to be sure the steerer isn't "butted" so the ID will be wrong further down.

    FBinNY has made a generous offer and he will certainly be able to tell if the steerer is suitable.
