    Where to buy Brakeless Forks?

    I have a GT Pulse and I need a fork. I would like a GT fork either from a GTB or a Pulse. At any rate I am a noobie here and this MODS wont let newbs post in the WTB section.

    I did search but I did not find anything.

    Where can I find a fork without provisions for a brake? The only one that I found was from Oval Concepts.
    I like em but a little too pricey for me at this time.

    Please advice...TIA.

    Why do you need a "brakeless" fork so bad? It's just a hole.
    I ride with pants so tight that they're spandex.

    Spicer Cycles, Keirin Culture, and possibly Alien Bikes could sell you just a fork. I think Trackstar used to have them a while back.

    you're looking for a fork. you don't care about the rake, the quality, the attributes, who makes it, what it's made of-- all you care about is that it doesn't have a hole in the crown. you went from oval concepts to cheap steel without blinking an eye.

    corny assed fake.

    Actually you are quite wrong. I was asking for suggestions, and asking for the OEM fork at the same time.

    From the looks of it, you post about every 15 minutes. If I am a pretend rider, so are you. How do you have time to ride when you're responding to so many threads?

    Another forum, another lame ass.

    Ignore Spooki, he has issues. Especially regarding Brooks saddles.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    it's called a career with an internet connection.

    i just got back from my morning 30.
    interestingly enough, it was on a fork i actually researched.

    but you're right, i was out of line. riding isn't for everyone. some people just need a nice accessory...

    good luck with your search.

    sp00ki is a unix admin. he is so good at his job that he has every single task shell scripted. all he really does all day is fire off cron jobs every couple of hours, browse the internets, and pet ponies.

    Possible reason

    Maybe a newbie needs to send a 'core message about how far removed from brakes he intends to be. If you have a fork that opens the option for brakes, you might as well have brakes and tell people you just don't use it. Might as well pack a sawed-off shotgun with a safety. When you're bangin' in Compton, you gotta come HARD!

    LOL my husband and I moved into his mothers house when she passed. So I am not the hard type...but my husband has a past. I am very into riding, and I run a youth center for inner city children. He doesn't ride but I wish he would, he's getting a gut.
