1994 Specialized Stumpjumper M2 FS threaded headset --> threadless?
I posted this in the mountain bike forum, but no one there seems to answer my questions. Sorry for the re-post.
I'm thinking about buying one of these. It looked like an awesome bike, but he said there might be issues with the fork. Since it's so old, I figured I would just replace the fork. But here's the catch: it uses a threaded headset.
So my question is: could I put a threadless headset into this frame (and therefore run a new fork)? It's one of those "welded metal matrix composite" frames. Anyone know about these or ever done something similar? I want the bike, but I also want to be able to put a new fork in it if the original is trashed.
