Replacement Forks

I have recently Purchased a Track Frame and the forks that came with it where undrilled and had some chrome issues. So I am searching for a replacement forks and headset.

I have measured the head tube at 180mm and i was wondering if anyone could tell me if these forks would fit? and with what headset stack height?

240 should be enough to work with. Minus your 180mm headtube = 60mm. You would probably need to run spacers, or cut the steerer down.

I have a 150mm headtube and 190mm steerer if that helps.

my 2c.

*edit, i see its sold! hope that was you!

ps, i want your track forks!

nope I didnt manage to get them:(

How about these?

I worked out I would need a stack height of 35 or less… I think. haha

by your calcs those leader forks should fit, personally not a fan of carbon on steel, but thats just me!

as long as it floats your boat mate!

I think tange makes a 32 stack height can you just rechrome and drill your old forks.

blasphemous! =D

I’m also going through this dilemma, i wouldn’t cop carbon forks though…

edit: you want drilled forks? easy to find mate…

What I’m getting at is, the only reason to use a fork with no rake is if the fork will spend a significant portion of half the time facing backward. Whether the fork blade is bent or not is a separate issue to how much rake it has.

I see what you mean. I just like straight forks.

Well be sure to post a pic when you get them.

Just keep in mind that making a change like using a 0 rake fork on a frame designed for rake will change your steering geometry, it could handle like shit

current fork has no rake, its just not very tight and i dont like it.
