I just want to ask a burning question in my mind. I still ride a bike that uses threaded headsets, I was wondering if I could use the tightening cap of the headset as the base of the whole thing then use spacers and a star nut and top cap to lock everything down?
I of course have tried the adapter systems, and I do not like how it feels, so I was wondering if I could do what I said above.
My fork is relatively new and has alot of extra steerer tube because I haven't cut it down yet.
So I went to the bike shops around my town and got to buy a shim or whatever they call it. Also bought the star nut and top cap for the bike. I made them do it for me, and it looks quite good now.. Will be posting a pic later when I get home.
