    Yep. Gotta get a threaded headset too.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "affordable," but dig around. Local shops might have some used steel stuff sitting in the basement that they'd sell you for a 6 pack, or you could drop 4 bills on a wound up. There's lots of stuff in between too.

    Originally it comes threadless... so you can run threaded (04 pista)?


    Thanks again!

    Yes. You have to get a threaded headset and a threaded fork with an appropriately sized steerer tube (diameter and length based on your head tube).

    I also prefer threaded headsets and quill stems, but only for aesthetics.

    My buddy's on a budget and we were hoping to throw on a headset/fork/stem/bars on it, which I have laying around to get it rolling.

    Crossing fingers that everything fits.

    + the stack height of your stem too.
