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)

Forte Axis Carbon Road Fork

I'm thinking about purchasing this fork, does anyone know if this is threaded?

Doesn't look like. However, it looks like it was designed for integrated headset (wide shelf at the crown) and it would't look right on a steel frame with narrow headtube. I have a fork for integrated headset on my road bike - I made it look kinda allright despite this diameter mismatch with an O-ring between the shelf and the headset, which additionally seals the bearing - can post pic if you like.

Dude, its 2006. Any road fork that's not specified otherwise is a 1 1/8 threadless.

bump it can be either 1 or 1 1/8, Performance.com is just sold out of the 1 1/8.

on another note, this deal is pretty sweet for a carbon fork. 50% off?
