LGF is correct. Late 90's Orange had 1 1/8th steerers and still used F7 forks.

I'm no expert, but they would be ahead style not threaded, wouldn't they?

On my 1 inch threaded F7s, I've fitted a Profile 1 inch quill adapter/converter to 1 1/8th threadless stem, with a Forge AHead stem on. A possible option/solution?

:oops: Didn't read the post properly. You're right that the set I had were ahead. Not sure if they ever did 1 1/8th threaded. The info will be in the archive though.

what were the Alu oranges using at the time? 1 1/4 steerers? I missed the threaded bit too.

Duh.
