    anyone have a steel fork lying around?

    I just got my Formula fix/free hubset in, and i was test fitting them, and realized my fork is 90mm spacing, I can flex it but I really don't want to do that for riding regularly, so I was wondering if anyone has a threaded 1" steel fork built for 650c wheels, and has 100mm hub spacing laying around that I could buy?

    I was wondering if i could just take the locknuts off, it is a sealed bearing hub, so am i right to assume i don't have to worry about the cones loosening?
