Can I put a modern 1inch threadless fork into an old 1990 steel frame. Do I need a certain type of headset for this to work?
E.g. ... 5360458999

Working on restoring my old rob telfer and love the idea of mixing old and new, just prefer a carbon fork over anything else.

    Absolutely. And yes, you will need a new threadless headset and also a new threadless stem and possibly some spacers to adjust stem height.

    Rob Telfer! Not commonly seen these days... his frames were fab. Let's see some pics!
