    threading a fork

    I just recently purchased a colnago flash carbon fork. I have plans to put this on a track frame and was wondering if it would be possible to thread this fork to use a track quill stem.

    I wouldn't do it.

    Cutting the threads with a die will remove metal from the steerer. Even rolling the threads is going to relocate the metal. If a threadless fork has adequate wall thickness to do this safely, it must have been overweight for normal threadless use. In today's market, I doubt that's the case.

    Actually,threadless and threaded steerers tend to be the same thickness. There is usually enough meat in a steel threadless ones. Wouldn't do in on an aluminum one. www.parktool.com has the minimum thickness need to do a threading job. Have it done by a frame builder or machinist,not nosepickers at LBS.

    for what reason? I understand that threadles forks are stronger but would I really be putting myself in harms way if I had the fork threaded?

    It's just uninformed BS. If the steerer is steel,do like I said, check out park tool and get it done by someone that knows what they are doing.
