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)

Not to be a dick... but why did you make a thread just to announce new parts, and not even any pics?! There is already a 'what did you just buy' thread. tsk tsk.

Congrats on a new fit!

Looks great. Did all the specs match up to the original fork? Have you given it a ride yet? What weight saving was accomplished?

Carbon fork looks like a good upgrade.

A note on your brake lever and cable... If it works for you, then I guess no worries. But you have it set up all wrong. The cable housing is supposed to go into the lever, with the cable itself going through to the bracket, which is probably designed to use a "road" style of cable terminal, as opposed to your "mountain" style. (Just in case you're interested.)
