Rigid fork options on specialised cross trail elite disc
I read that a popular fork for people wanting to go rigid on their crosstrails is the kona project 2.
I have just bought a pair from fleabay and am going to convert front brake to cantilever to suit fork. I have noticed however that the steerer is threaded! Can I use threaded steerer on my clamp style stock set up?
No. You cannot use a threaded fork with a threadless headset. Back in the day, riders would grind the threads off shimano headsets to use them with threadless setups, but you cannot go the other way
You can get a threaded headset and stem but I would just get the right fork. And I wouldnt go rim brakes from discs. If anything, I would go hydro over cable
700c, 1 1/8" threadless, disc, suspension adjusted P2 is what you want. Does your current wheelset have rim braking tracks?
Pretty sure my old '06 or '07 Crosstrail had disc rims. Also note,was this a new or used fork? If used,make certain there is enough steerer tube for your setup.

Thanks guys. Yes they were used but stem was long enough. Just checked rims and they are disk only anyway.....doh!
Oh well, worth a thought....!
