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)

Recommend A new Fork

My 62 Raphael Geminiani's fork got bent into some crazy looking S shape, rest of bike seems to be fine (front wheel was even true) so i need a new fork, and want to keep the crazy tight geometry... my LBS has a columbus track fork or two... any advice? 1" and i definately am going for threaded.

you should idealy bring the frame to your LBS to get them to check over your headtube for ovalization and also around the headtube lugs for compression or paint chips etc.
Just rub your fingers around the headtube area to check for buldges.

anyways, if your LBS has sweet columbus track forks in stock, might as well just pick em up from there.
