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)

twisted fork 1" threaded UK needed

Hello,


All after much biking around with a shabby front brake response my brother inlaw pointed out that my front forks are twisted! God knows why I never looked.. well the upshot of this is that I am now on the hunt for a replacement.. Not getting anywhere with this.. LBS ( we have lots here in Manchester ) aren't coming up with the goods. i can only find a fork that feels like it is cast from iron and comes with a bracket to hold a lamp? The rest of the frame is a raleigh reynolds 753 frame and is as light as a feather.

Anyone got a spare fork they don't need?

many thanks

Simon

you can get that steel fork re-alligned by a knowledgeable person.
