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)

Poor dumb college kid needs help.

I am in a fix. I have an old ATX 860 that I want to convert into a single speed b/c I blew out the front suspension. It is a 1 inch steerer tube and I can't for the life of me find a fork that is rigid, 1 inch steerer and has v-brake bosses. Can anyone help me? I would love to buy one or know where I can get one, or if you would like I would love to take one . Thanks.

where do you live? in columbus, i'm pretty sure the co-op has a few...do you have a co-op around you? you might not get top of the line stuff, but does that matter to you? that's an important question to answer.

I'm in Tuscaloosa, AL. That is what I was looking for, I found one right after I posted this but I was thinking I might get a used one.
