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)

low dollar, rigid MTB fork suggestions?

hi folks. long time lurker, first time poster.

I have an old DB MTB that I converted to SS a few years ago, and a few months ago I threw a 16T cog on the other side of the flip flop, and have been using it in fixie mode as my commuter. needless to say, the suspension fork needs to go. any suggestions or experience?

On One do a great one: http://www.on-one.co.uk/products/inbred_forks.shtml. Surly's one is maybe even better (maybe).
