Without seeing the bike in person, I don't think you can. That appears to have a 1" steerer and threadless is 1-1/8". I don't know what the diameter of that headtube is, but, that'll be the hangup. You can download this Cane Creek tech file that shows headset specs (page #5). They have the dimensions listed for what'll fit what.

threadless also came in 1" and 1-1/4".
but you have a point; the steerer tube dims will need to be the same.

You have no idea how much it sucks when you get into the wrong ones. Google 'jumping cholla' and come back.

I used to bring foreceps and a multitool to go running in the desert. Pretty much every run I was picking cholla out of either the dog or me.

...and don't get me started on goatheads. I picked 20+ out of the ex-'s tires after one ride. Thank doG for Slime!

Ritchey, Serotta and at least one more all make 1" t-less forks.

Personally, unless you're dead set on having a frankenbike, hit up Pricepoint.com and get one of their AL road frames.

The only thing a carbon fork does is drop some weight and absorb some of the road buzz. Big hits still feel like big hits. On the downside, its more fragile, you won't be able to get as many spacers under the stem like you've got now unless you're using at least an AL steerer (or steel) if you can find one, and well... save your $ for that pricepoint frame above.

I used to visit my grandparents in Tucson and I remember those Jumping Chollas.



The barbs must have hooks in them because it hurts like hell to pull them out.

Damn man, that's insane!


Just ordered up some MTB love for the upcoming season! New rear Maxxis high roller, Camelback bladder, new grips and nicer/non snapped pedals. I'm officially pumped. Just gotta order up my AM full face and I'm good to go.

Yep, they're curved and trying to remove them often just results in them "rolling" down your arm. What we do is carry what we call a "Cho-Comb" (think Fro pic). You slide it under the cholla, and then flick them off. Still hurts like hell but works well. Our club distributes them all the time... here you can see our "cho-comb tree" that we decorated at the 24 Hours in teh Old Pueblo race that was just this last weekend.



Here it is in-action, from a night ride. That's my leg, by the way:

i am kinda set on having a frankenbike...its sorta my nature... i like making things that the majority of folks say cant be done, work....LOL as for the spacer issue, i already ordered a 130mm adjustable reach stem... the bars are a bit high for my liking currently, because of the stem mount shifters... i ordered a set of brake lever shifters last night so that solves that issue as well...and i didnt want the carbon for big hits, i wanted it for the cut down on road vibes...i am planning a 450mi one week ride this summer, and dont want numb hands...LOL

and a side note.... i dont know what it is that i like, but i prefer a chro-mo road frame over aluminum... i cant put a finger on it, but i dislike the feel of my brothers aluminum frame bike, but love my chro-mo that i have built up....
