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)

replacement fork (IRO)??

Due to some smooth moves, I have a bent fork on my mark V. Any ideas on where to pick up a generic replacement fork. Perhaps I should give a Tony a call...but I poked around the site a little bit and didnt see anything related to just forks. Plus, I know the Mark V is sold out, dont know the liklihood of him having leftover Mark V forks...

Ideas?

I bent my fork in an accident and just ended up going with an Easton EC30. So far so good.

that's what the ol' LBS recommended. i was hoping to find another straight bladed fork. i may wait a bit and see if anyone comes up with some more options. for now i get to pretend my mark v is some super duper track machine due to it's new toe overlap problems
