Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Does it matter if the fork is surly or not? You can get a new surly fork for about $50. It's a great deal either way, so buy it Dammit!

Just buy it!

Looks like a black Surly fork, to me. That's a pretty sweet deal, no matter how you slice it.

Yea, if you factor in a new surly fork if you really want a matching bike and factor in shipping, you get an almost new surly frame and king hs for a little more than $300. That's a great deal if you ask me......

BUY IT!

Dude - $240 for a frame in good condition and a chris king headset?!? BUY NOW

if you change your mind later, you can always make it a project with cheap parts and resell it on ebay as full bike for 500 no prob.

Heh, congrats on the purchase, and nice headset! I'd love to ride it someday, however a bike that tall wouldn't be good on my manhood as I ride a 56....however, lets see pics once its done. Enjoy the new ride!

if anybody cares....despite my horror of the new iro fork, the stronglight up on ebay now, and the fear that it wont fit.....

....i have confirmation that it is a surly fork....that the decals were removed....and that the little do on the seat tube is some random sticker...good enough

should the frame fit....im thinking i will either repaint the frame lime green or a mix of safety orange and caution yellow....all chromish parts...white seat...mmmm

oy
