I think I'll start searching the forums!
threaded to threadless is:
- new headset
- new fork
- new stem
and you can make those as cheap or as expensive as you want. The procedure is not that hard.

Improvement? Not that much but for the looks it's like a boobjob: looks a much younger
and discbrakes is no problem if your new fork supports it but your rear bridge of the frame doesn't support it so you end up with one v-brake and one disc brake

Finally picked up a bike this weekend.

It's an '09 Scott Spark




Can't wait to get it dirty tonight!
I'll use the toe clips until I decide on which clipless pedals to install.

Thanks.

I plan to, but I have to be careful because in Germany all bikes are required to have reflectors, lights and bells..

I'm def. not putting a bell on this, and I don't have any lights as I don't ride at night.
I don't plan to ride road with this, so I'm hoping the "Polizei" don't police the trails lol.

Having a bell on a bike does not make you a "sissy boy" At least not here in the USA , or where I live and ride. Many riders use them as a way to tell people in front of them that are to slow to get the F**K out of the way. I have thought about putting one on myself.
