    Threaded Forks Getting Cut and Rethreaded.

    Ive got a threaed fork and need to get it cut down and rethreaded....into FRENCH Threads

    And i located in the Bay Area about 30min North of San Fran... in Fairfield..

    I need to get my fork cut but everyone (bike shops) says go to these frame builders and theyd be willing to cut and rethreaded. They refer me to the frame builders due to the fact that the 'dies' are expensive and are really meant to chase threads not cut new ones.

    I want it rethreaded into French but i know that is next to impossible..

    Got any suggestions where i should send my fork to????

    And ive also got a set of 28hole Zeus Track Hubs on the way to my house. Any recommendations on 28 hole rims that ARE clinchers that i could throw on them??

    just wondering....
    why would one willingly subject themselves to the colossal ass-pain that is french threading?

    At least one Bay Area BFSSFG member has had success with Bernie Mikkelsen. If I remember correctly he had a threaded steerer put onto a Soma fork for not too much money.

    Are you doing this for a specific headset, because I would just get a different one. That or mix and match parts; use top nut from an iso one.

    don't change the threading.
    thread more first(the old threading can be a guide).
    then cut.

    It's really something you can do yourself.
