carbon track forks**********?

i have a gios pista and the person who owned it before me put a ****ty road fork on it that has way too much rake. who makes a carbon track fork or just a nice track fork? I have had problems finding one online.

american cyclery sells some forks in their fixed gear online store. all are steel tho. the soma threadless has track rake, but is drilled for a brake and has the clearance for one. i don't know much about the cinelli forks they're selling, but you could probably give them a call.

Track forks

Get in touch with WWW.Businesscycles.com and have John order you the Cinelli Track fork. It will save you about 50 bucks over the American Cyclery price. Same fork, just cheaper.

Alpina do a straight carbon fork designed for track racing, it has a 1" alloy steerer and retails at 99 or approx $175. www.oldhamcyclecentre.co.uk has them, and I'm sure there must be a dealer for them in the US.

Track cycling has a Ridley straight carbon fork also for 110:

Again it's another UK site, but once you take off the 17.5% tax, the charge for delivery and customs might not be so much.

streners: good info! The second link also seems to have the Alpina fork listed.

This is the $110 one (pounds not dollars)

Oh yeah colnago does make a track fork, I have not seen them for sale other then with their pista frames though. It just seems wrong to me to be a colnago fork on anything but a colnago though...
