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)

Yeahhh get a leader fork. It'll be more proper and not to mention look better than that cheapie.

I think this might work if you wanted to use a tapered fork and the inner diameter of the headtube is 44mm. It will add some height though.

Cane Creek 40.EC44/40.Bottom Assembly

Someone else would have to chime in and confirm that for me though.

thanks for the suggestion. I'm defiantly not experienced enough, nor will I be doing any type of riding to where I NEED a full carbon fork. my only thoughts leading to the 3T originally were some of the advantages I knew about carbon and the fact the price point was about equal to an entry level fork. the leader forks probably are better fitted for my pay grade money/experience wise. it sounds like it'll take less modification up front which is better for me being as I'm still learning about a lot of the parts that make up a standard build. I'll have to keep in mind that it is possible though for further down the road. good to know.
