Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - New fork for KHS flite 100

I just received a KHS flit 100 frame without fork. Any opinions on what kind of fork will handled best on the street... Should I get a track fork with similar 28mm rake (I think that is how they come on this bike???) Or should I get a road fork with more like 45mm rake?

If you get a fork with more rake, you will reduce the trail and the bike will be unstable. Also, what size frame is it? I think the smaller size frames had a slacker head angle and more fork rake, but not as much as 45mm.

i put a nashbar carbon threaded fork on it. works well. cheap.
I like that nashbar fork, but the rake is 43mm and the above post says to stay away from that much rake.
I see origin 8 has a track fork with 38mm rake at a good price.
