    Frame Retrofits: Fork Ends....

    You guys are the most active fixie board I have come across, so I figured I would throw a out a quick question.

    I am looking to get fork ends brazed into my older Trek frame, and would like some suggestions on where to get a good pair. I like the Paul's, but I think I may not have enough material on the frame to get them to work well. This also rules out the Surly's and Sub-11's.

    I am also trying to find a good frame builder to braze the afore-mentioned ends into my frame, as all of my brazing gear was jacked out of my garage last month. Grrr.

    So if anyone has a suggestion for good fork ends or a builder, I would greatly appreciate it. And, If you are in the Portland, OR area look me up and we can head to the Lucky Lab for a brew and Le Tour.

    You can see the bike in its earliest form here My Trek, and my other toy Bianchi

    The Pauls are nice with the built in chain tugs but they are expensive (around $40). I think the surly's have the nice hood around the bolt and they are much cheaper. The only frame builder I know of in Portland is Vanilla. Good luck and report back.

    Cheers
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
