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)

the last thing you want is a pursuit geo when you are bombing sketchy stuff.

I was kidding. I'm just trying to make her a pursuit frame to ride around on. Links would be cool.

but... a 650 fork won't make a track bike a pursuit bike. It will make a track bike in to a track bike with greater chance of pedal strike.

Actually, I'm looking for one too. My girl owns a 43cm fuji w/ 650c (She's really short)

She wants the bike to be more comfortable and lighter, so I'm looking for a review or suggestions on a carbon fork for 650c wheels.

yeah because lowering the bottom bracket closer to the ground by adding a shorter fork and smaller wheel won't have any effect whatsoever.

That and you handling will suck as you are essentially de-raking your bike. Look at a pursuit bike headtube angle vs. a steamroller, now drop down the front end another 51mm with a smaller wheel, plus another 51mm with the shorter fork...
