Threadless Converter

Is there anyone who has used threadless converter with their 1" threaded forks and quills to change them to threadless?

I was wondering just that are those good in track? It would be lot easier to find stems and handlebars to threadless..

they add some weight, but they'll work. they will clamp tight. no reason NOT to use them. cheaper than a new fork and headset.
