    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...goods&v=glance

    I'm thinking about purchasing this fork, does anyone know if this is threaded?

    Forte is the Performance house brand...and they have a combo pack with that fork which includes a threadless stem at:

    Doesn't look like. However, it looks like it was designed for integrated headset (wide shelf at the crown) and it would't look right on a steel frame with narrow headtube. I have a fork for integrated headset on my road bike - I made it look kinda allright despite this diameter mismatch with an O-ring between the shelf and the headset, which additionally seals the bearing - can post pic if you like.

    dude, your thinking of purchasing bike parts from amazon.com!?
    don't do it. its not going to work out.
    + it doesn't even have ANY specs.
    and if you call them, they'll prob be clueless about it because amazon.com aren't bike people.
    physics hertz.

    Dude, its 2006. Any road fork that's not specified otherwise is a 1 1/8 threadless.

    bump it can be either 1 or 1 1/8, Performance.com is just sold out of the 1 1/8.

    on another note, this deal is pretty sweet for a carbon fork. 50% off?
