    Threaded or threadless?

    I have a 1" fork with a super long threaded steerer, but it's a mid to lower end. Looks fine, but it's heavy, and it's TIG welded.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Threaded... But for the lower/mid end forks shipping over the pond would make no sense.. Nevertheless, thanks for the offer!

    And @jestep: Custom would be an option, but I really would like to testride the bike before I went nuts...

    Like many of us think, I too think you are mistakenly remembering Mafac instead of Magura.

    Nope, the cantilever brakes clearly are stamped Mafac. The levers were the same brand . They came on my 1981 Ritchey Mt McKinley.

    Are these wat you re looking for::

    Fisher and Kelly were the US distributor for Magura levers, so the vast majority of bikes came with Magura levers. Tomiselli was as an option too, but generally used when trying to avoid Fisher/Kelly. I have never seen Mafac levers on a mountain bike.

    I think I can help you with these levers. If you can't get them in the states let me know, I'll send them over... And I might be able to get the right brakes as well.

    @fos'l: the Mt Fuji sounds interesting but I just need a fork not a complete frame set...

    Anyone have an old Suntour XC Sport rear derailleur? (1986 Trek 850) I think I stripped the threads on the bolt that holds the clutch on...

    First..... I know I know..... rare as hen's teeth. But I would really like a WTB converted Suntour post for a Phoenix.

    Can anyone help a guy that really really wants to ride this Phoenix because he has been looking for one for pushing 15 years? Thanks!!!!!
