    threaded to threadless?

    Is it possible to make a 1"threaded headset 1" threadless? Can you just press in a threadless headset? Please help me on this. Thanks.

    Yes, you can use a 1" threadless headset, but you need to use a new fork with a threadless fork steer tube.

    I wanted to put 29' wheels on an old hybrid. It has 700c wheels but the fork is really narrow and wide tires wont fit. It has a threaded fork and I found some wider 1" forks, but they are threadless. It is the old cannondale hybrid that looks like a killer v. I have alot of cannondales, but no 29ers. Thought it might be fun.I think it is an ht300 or something like that. The guy wants about 120 for it. Like I said kind of an experiment.
