I recently bought a 531 Magnum tubed Peugeot mountain bike.
The forks are threaded 1 1/8, does that mean the headtube will be easy to convert to a threadless headset and forks?
Head tube yes,
Forks no. Doesn't mean it can't be done but it's not easy. New forks probably the easiest.
Thanks, was a badly phrased question. The threaded forks are going. Was just asking that if headset is 1 1/8 threaded there should be space for 1 1/8 threadless too. Seems to be OK but reassurance is always nice!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
