skieslord: The problem I see is that the walls of the steerer tube are quite thin and cutting threads into it might weaken it to the point where it might fail at the base of the threads, leaving you with the handlebars no longer attached to the fork. Funny in the cartoons, not so much on a fast downhill run.
