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)

WTB: replacement fork for Kilo TT (bike island no brand)

howdy yall

I recently bought the bike island 2008 cromo "old school fixed gear" frameset (= no-decal kilo tt)... but before I could put it together the fork was stolen.
I assume that some people out there who bought this frameset are replacing the fork on it - so if anybody has an extra one lying around (preferably in black or white) I'd like to buy it from you for a decent price! I'm not sure what length steerer tube I need offhand, but the framesize I bought was the 53 c-c. (Anyone have that measurement?)
I'd also be interested in any similarly brake-drilled, 1" threaded 700c cromo forks with ~40mm rake anyone might wish to part with.

Alternately, does anyone know where/from whom I might be able to just order the replacement fork directly? Bike island hasn't responded to my e-mail yet (granted, it's only been 12 hours).

search Ebay, there are several forks with the specs you're looking for, between $10 and $100 depending on quality. there's nice chrome ones available from Hoosier Bike Supply for around $30 inc. shipping.
