    I presume the 1″ threaded can be swopped out for a 1″ threadless if I change the headset?

    whoo hoo – Life in the old dog yet then. Totally unjustified, but never really trusted the threaded and quill as much as the threadless.

    Why do you want to fit a 1 1/8″ stem if you’ve got a threaded steerer?
    Then you just need a 1″ quill stem.
    As it sounds like you haven’t bought the forks, I would suggest non-threaded, then you can use a shim.

    I recently fitted one of those quill stem convertors to my old Kona – got sick of feeling stretched out on the bike and wanted a little pop-up type stem. Works just fine.

    Forks are non threaded – going for the exotic 1″ carbon ones from ebay. Current steel ones are threaded.

    That’s what confused me! The 1″ threaded what?

    I have an old Sworks steel stumpy in 1″ threaded flavour.
    I can find the Carbon cycles 1″ forks, the 1″ headset and the 1″ spacers, but a bit stumped how I can fit a 1 1/8 stem? Anyone?

    If steerer is carbon or alloy stick with the shim idea.
    Quill convertor is likely to damage alloy or carbon
