Online Purchase with Threadless Fork?
When you purchase a SS/FG complete online from a dealer like Bikes Direct, how do they ship the threadless fork? Already cut?
From pictures/descriptions on this forum, it looks like they are already cut and you can just fasten the stem, right out the box and ride.
I've never purchased a bike with a threadless fork and I'm not really sure how they determine where to cut it to ensure the proper height (ie if they cut it just above the top tube and the customer wants something higher, is the only way to adjust to get a stem with a higher angle?)
I'm really close to buying a Surly Steamroller and I'd really rather have a threaded fork. I've read on the forum that it's sometimes hard to find a LBS that can cut threads for this. Does anyone know of a site that will sell this bike with a threaded fork and/or cut the fork for me?
