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)

Steel fork, ala carte

Hi,

I am looking for a steel fork, 1-1/8", >40mm rake, center brake bolt with >368mm axle to crown length.

Any help with the best place to get it and/or fork options to consider?

This will be for a new fixed gear fun-bike build. K,thx,bai.

(I don't like the looks of the Surly forks.)

well, the surly pacer fork is the obvious choice. But i guess its aesthetics displease you.

Not ideal but this should work:

Judging by the search, you'll be looking at cyclocross forks
