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)

New Fixie Fork

Any recommendations for a fork? I have an '03 Bianchi Pista and the fork is kinda noodly to me..

Any help would be great, thanks

Noodly? It is steel, right? Steel does flex a bit...did you shorten your stem lately? You can try an Aluminum fork, but those can really beat the hell outta yer shoulders/arms (but that depends on the streets you ride).

I have a 02' Pista and I certainly wouldn't describe me fork as "noodly".

Profile makes a straight blade carbon "sprint" fork. I had one on my last road bike, stiff but with out the pounding of alloy. It is not to pricey and comes with a threaded steerer.

i hear good things about the soma rush fork. it will tighten the space between the tire and downtube as well.
