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)

Quick, I really need to find a fork by tomorrow. I am looking for a straight fork like this one in this picture. http://velospace.org/files/RushHour.jpg

Good luck finding a fork with no mention of headtube size, headset style, wheel size, and options for brakes.

I am sorry , no need to be so sarcastic tho.

I am looking for a straight fork thats 1 1/8, wheels would have to fit 700C, preferably 700x32C. Its either that or I am buying a Raleigh rush hour fork off someone tomorrow for 35$. http://www.bicyclesports.biz/images/..._rush_hour.jpg

Which doesn't look as nice as the first Raleigh rush hour fork in the first picture. I don't care about breaks either.

Wait you don't want a pake fork, but instead want a performancebike.com house brand fork? How high quality do you think a $70 carbonfiber fork is?

It looks exactly like the fork that comes with the kona paddy wagon.... I bet it is.... It's a pretty nice looking and performing fork nonetheless.
