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)

Ya spicer looks good, but i need a 1". Their 1" forks arent the same style

I don't think a fork without that angle could get by with the straight mounting. The wheel would be in the downtube.
