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)

IRO Jamie Roy carbon fork

I have an IRO Jamie Roy 50cm - great bike. I'm planning on replacing the stock aluminum fork with a carbon fork. Does anyone have any idea which fork and fork size would work? Any help would be appreciated.

pretty much any carbon fork with 1 1/8 steer tube made for 700c wheels will work fine

Thanks for the info. I do get down to Tremont a lot in the summertime. I'm way too old to be a hipster though. LOL

The winter has been absolutely brutal. It's been really cold and a lot of snow too. I think you guys in Athens are gonna get some snow tonight. Go Bobcats!
