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)

Anyone makes an 1" aero fork?

Before I get bashed, I did search but i think computers have trouble differentiating 1" from 1 1/8".

I'm wondering if people make aero forks that are 1". The only fork I found so far is the Easton EC90. I distinctly remember about half year ago this bike shop showed me this carbon fork that had cut outs in it. I can't remember the make. Anyway, not necessarily important. Please post if you know of any aero 1" forks in general.

Thanks.

I spent months looking for one and finally found an old cervello that some guy had cut waaaay down. Now I need to get a steering tube extender. Bottom line is that there isn't much out there.

only one i know of is oval concepts. not sure it comes in 1", but they do still make 26.0 bars, so they may very well have a 1" fork.

Hmm.. very close. Except i remember that the cutouts were a little different, more towards the front face. Weird i know.
Just checked their website, the only 1" fork is in 650c
