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)

27" chrome 1" threaded fork with >= 250mm steer tube?

One of my friends wants me to build a single speed from a 25" frame Fuji Special Road Racer. Looks like the the fork is bent. I have a chrome replacement fork (27" wheels, 1" threaded) that I planned to use instead, but when I measured, the steertube is only 200mm. Does anyone have a cost effective suggestion? We will be going with 700c DP18 wheelset, so not sure if that opens up any 700c fork options?
