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)

I took a close look this weekend and it's just the fork that's out of whack.

Thanks god for steel, I've been riding this thing for about 5 years now. It feels solid. I think this can be fixed.

Could anyone recommend a new fork for this rig, for me? My fork is bent
How do I go about determining a good rake measure? It doesn't have to replicate the existing rake - just something on the cheaper side that will do the job would be good. Any advice helps - thx

Oh, and sorry for the low quality photos and garage lighting (I'll try and take a better one soon). I just wanted to get on the new thread ASAP!

With that short headtube you're likely to need more threads cut on any fork you get.

Flip side is it is a good opportunity to go 1" threadless; be sure get the thomson 1" => 1 1/8" spacer if you do.

Good idea - I hadn't even thought of that. How would I do this? Disassemble the current headset, and then just install a threadless 1" onto the frame/head tube? Also, why go 1 1/8" threadless > 1" threadless - just for versatility basically? Thanks

Where would you get this done at? A bike shop? Or a hardware store maybe? Sounds like a pain :\

A hardware store?

It's really not that big of a deal for a bike shop to extend existing threads on a fork.

You don't have a 1 1/8" threadless setup, you have 1" threaded.

Hahaha, definitely nogo hardware store! Many bike shops are set up to cut some threads. Probably $15 to run more threads down steerer and cut it to length.

My guess is Leuky was talking about shimming up to a 1-1/8" stem so you would have 1000 stems to choose from instead of 12.
