Who makes a 1" threadless carbon track fork??

Been looking to upgrade my Bianchi Pista fork for quite awhile, Ebay and craigslist have failed me; does anybody know a company that makes a 1" threadless carbon fiber track fork??

You can probably use a regular road fork. If you need track rake, you might call Marinoni, since I have seen on fixed gear fever that they are willin to helping out. They fit 1" forks to their pista too.

Uh, no. A 43mm rake is not a track fork. That is a road fork. Track rake is well under 40mm rake for most 35-38mm.

Its tough. Wound-up are about the only company I've seen making 1" in track(ish) rakes.

1" track forks still crop up on NOS/2nd hand, which is probably your best option, as frustrating as it is.

Wow that's stupid.

Another suggestion is Corima - they still have some Cougar forks laying around. The rake is something like 22mm though, so probably too aggressive for the OP's bike.

"Skillful response"? What does that even mean? It's obvious that your statement is dripping with sarcasm, but even ironically my response would not be considered "skillful." Perhaps if you said "Worthwhile response" or "Valuable response," you might have not come off so stupid. It was worth pointing out how idiotic the OP's openly hostile statement was, because just because a fork is 1" doesn't mean it's the correct rake for a track bike. If you have no idea what you're talking about, you probably should not attempt to insult people who do while being wrong in every respect.

Further, the implication is that I'm offering nothing of value, when in fact I posted to tell the OP that Corima still has (possibly makes) a 1" track fork. It is, in fact, your post which has absolutely zero merits.

You're trying to sound clever and falling flat on your face.

I've done some searching recently too, and sadly, I've only come across a couple brands/models but nothing that I'm really interested in yet.
