Benefits of thread-less depend on who you are, how much you weigh and how strong you are.

The thread-less setups I have on a few of my bikes combine decent forks with a bullet-proof headset (Chris King) and a well-constructed stem. All of these elements are must haves, or the thread-less setup is more trouble than it is worth (and it frequently was during the 1990s).
