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)

i decided that since i no longer have a brake on my bicycle i wanted a nice traditional track fork. stupid clearance, no holes, flat shoulders, round tubes.

like this:


jeff at busy bee said he had this surly fork that fit the bill (hence the question), but it turned out to be threadless. so i'm back on the hunt

Admit it you've just got a fork fetish. There's no shame in that.

Of course if I traded forks with you, I'd have to have yours autoclaved.

yea turned out it was. i would have been ok with it though. it was right in every other way other than it was threadless. i pass a brown steamroller on elizabeth street every day and that's threaded, so i figured it was going to be fine.

damn!

Older Steamrollers are threaded.
New ones are threadless.

Yeah, Surly forks have crazy clearance on them. Regardless, I bought mine (threadless) for $30 or $35 off of someone on Craig's List.
