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)

What crankset do you have? V2s had clearance issues with some cranks.

You're going to need a zero-stack headset like the FSA ZS-3 or Cane Creek ZS-3. I would reccommend a carbon fork. You'll have a nasty, harsh ride with aluminum.

As long as the stem is 1 1/8" (you'll need a fork with a 1 1/8" steerer), it will fit.

If you're on a budget, check out some good used stuff on craigslist and the ebay.
