1 1/8 threaded - vs - 1 1/8 threadless ,,,, Can I mix and match????
Ok... sooo I managed to pickup a SYNCROS straight blade fork and a matching SNYCROS quill stem with the little cantilever cable housing catcher on the bottom (with SYNCROS handle bar)...
I really want to get onto a frame...
they came off of a bike that was build for 1 1/8 threaded headsets...
Here's my question.... Can I take a bike frame from the early 90's that was built for rigid forks that have a 1 1/8 threadless headset and install these forks with a 1 1/8 threaded headset??
I know that I can always change the steer tube and use it with the threadless headset but I want to use it with that quill stem...
So, just to ask more clearly... Can you use a 1 1/8 threaded headset / fork on a modern frame that was built for a 1 1/8 threadLESS headset / fork ?
