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)

Spicer Track Fork

Anyone know how tight the clearance is with a 700 x 23 tire?

They fit fine, these are 23 ultrasports:



Also, their customer service is the best I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

edit: Sorry for the huge picture

I wish I could fit a 28mm tire on my undrilled track fork. OH WELL.

How is this fork? I'm looking into it.. I really don't like the stock Pista fork. I'm just a little worried that spending the extra money won't be worth it and that it will look dumb and a green Pista.
