    Hi, I am planning on upgrading forks eventually but it's not in the cards
    ($$$) right now for the fork that I want. Until then I want to start
    accumulating the other accessories. I recall seeing an adaptor for a
    threaded fork to use an ahead style stem. I can't seem to be able to find
    one online and the LBS doesn't have one. Anyone know where I can get one,
    online or otherwise. TIA

    What is an "Ahead style" stem? Performance Bike and Nashbar both carry
    adapters which let you use a threaded fork with stems designed for
    threadless. Is that what you mean? I've got one on my bike and it
    works fine; adds a few ounces of weight compared to a true threadless
    fork, but adds a lot of versatility.
