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)

1 1/8" Forks

I'm looking for a non carbon fork that is 1 1/8" threadless. I'd prefer steel.

I like the look of the chrome fork that Bike Cult sells, but they only have it in 1". If there was a fork like this somewhere (with comparable price, too!), that'd be perfect.

Also, straight blade is preferred, but not necessary.

Oh, and by the way, search is broken. Go figure.

Vindication! Also, I have an IRO 1-1/8" fork on my Rob Roy, and it has curved legs. The fork from the IRO Mark V has straight legs with a 1-1/8" steerer.
