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)

Ah, no wonder.

This one
has 50mm rake, which is about ~49mm of trail with 700x23c tires. That's not a lot of trail.

Correction: BI says the fork is 26.4 race on inch thanks vix. Probally gunna get that if he doesnt want to spend the money. Becuase its either a wound up fork used for 100 in 38mm rake.... or a new tange fork in 38mm rake or this in 50mm.

They won't have any decals.

Your brother really should lay off the crack though.

~44mm rake is not at all unusual on a road bike. there are *tons* of road forks @ 43mm or 45mm, but they will be drilled for brakes. if you've got a short steerer and deep pockets, i've got a full carbon ouzo pro in 1"/45mm.

Oh, I meant that 50mm was a lot of rake.

I'd opt for dookie's Ouzo fork.

IRO is selling forks for $60, but the rake is 43mm.

But dude, you make so many threads... Jeez.

Don't think that you have to absolutely get a 44mm rake. You won't notice any difference if you get a 43mm or 45mm. But 38mm will change the trail a bit.
