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)

Action Straight Blade Fork vs. Soma?

I searched all over and can't find any reviews for the Action straight blade track fork (here). I was going to order the Soma fork until I found this for $50 less. Anyone know if there's a difference between the two? They're made of the same tubing and have the same measurements. It would also be helpful if anyone has had experience with anything from Action brand.

yep, same-same. I've got the threaded version on my Pake, works great, not unreasonably heavy, no issues.
