Anlen Eagle MTB - Conversion to Single Speed

Hi, have and idea in the end of the bike season to convert my 18 speed mtb into single speed. I use only one speed 38T in front and 16T (sometimes change to 14T) in back. I have freewheel on so it's not a problem to change it into single speed. That's main idea, also I decided to repaint my frame and get it nice look. Have few color ideas in my mind. Biggest problem for me is that I want to install threadless fork, previously I had threaded 1" fork with this type of cups:



and have an idea to put this on:



so the problem is - how hard to find 1" suspension fork for 26", is that even possible?

Also before I had bearing bottom brackets (68x116mm) and will install Monoblock 68x117mm with square-taper. That's main conversions which I will do on my mtb. Here is some photos of my frame:



Cheers, Artur B.

Your question seems to be: so the problem is - how hard to find 1" suspension fork for 26", is that even possible?

Are you talking about in Latvia? Or on the planet Earth?

This question should be asked in the MTB forum.
