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)

Rake for Windsor The Hour

Completely stock Hour from BD. Firstly does anyone know the rake of the stock fork?

Secondly, if I want to shorten my wheelbase for aesthetic and maneuverability/agility I should, in theory look for a fork with a smaller rake than the stock?

Third, if not why?

Fourth, has anyone tried this successfully?
