Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I hate cutting a chromed fork as it is very hard on the cutter(SHARPENING A CUTTER IS 35 TO 50 BUCKS) That said I will cut a threaded fork because so few people need it done anymore, might as well make somebody happy.

this is a decent place to ask this, i suppose... is it possible to have a 1" threadless fork threaded? yes, i know that some people may think i'm dumb for doing it, but that aside.. can it be done?

I think that is the gist of what the OP wants to do...and find a location where this threading would occurr.

Its a sweet fork and I'm really tempted to buy it from ya, but right now money's tight and I'd have to put it on another bike considering I have shunned chrome in favor of black for my current ride. Good looking out though. Thanks.

yeah it was me. The fork is still good to use threadless, but the threads I paid to have put on there stripped in about a month

I would not thread a threadless steerer. The wall thickness is not enough to support the threads.
