    hate to say it, but rei. they'll have a selection possibly larger than most bike shops. also, you can return/exchange them if they end up sucking or hurting your feet or whatever after a few weeks or months. or try them on at rei then order online; guilt free.gone

    Yeah but I'm more interested in the front one that clamps onto the fork blades. Dia Compe makes them too.

    gonna throw this out there: get another fork with the same rake/trail...that has brakes on it. because no matter how fancy your bolt-on boobs* are...they're still bolt-ons. will definitely be cheaper if you can find an errant fork + a crown race that matches yours, so you wouldn't have to buy another headset.

    That's a good idea, there have to be many comparable used and new drilled track forks in the current post-fixie bike climate."Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."

    Looks like my fork has a huge extended lug on the inside of the blades, which makes it not round, and probably not good for any type of clamp. I found a Dia Compe rear brake adapter, so I was going to try the rear brake/fixed combo, and if that sucks I'll probably get it drilled.

    Edit: fork matching seems like it would be really tricky on an older (probably custom) track bike. I've tried measuring fork rake at home and it was a huge pain in the ass.

    If it were me, between axle to crown and offset, I'd just try to find something close enough. In all likelihood it's in the area of 30mm, +- 3mm.

    first of all, ride brakeless you turd.

    but while I don't agree with your decisions I will fight with my life to defend your right to express them and encourage the riding of track bikes in all cases so i'm going to pitch in and say that fixed plus rear brake can be fun as hell. its an automatic skid lever. and also aesthetically one brake is worse than two or none so it doesn't matter if it's front or rear and clamp-on rear is easier than drilling the fork.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    ^I'm goofy as shit and have this idea that learning to do brakeless skids might mean falling over a couple times. Every time I've fallen over clipped in I've gotten really fucked up, so for now no thanks.

    ^^Is 30mm what they use for track forks? My fork is looks to be around 43-45, so more like a road fork. However, it's slightly smaller than a road fork, so that's the kicker.

    MJ:If it were me, between axle to crown and offset, I'd just try to find something close enough. In all likelihood it's in the area of 30mm, +- 3mm.

    This. Remember that adding 20mm more axle-to-crown plus 5mm more offset basically cancel each other out in terms of handling change, anyway. Longer fork and longer rake or shorter fork and shorter rake = essentially the same handling. The wheelbase will be longer, but if you're riding it on the road, that's not a bad thing.
    And even if you can't find a match where the math works out precisely, are you really so married to the trackiness of that bike that you wouldn't be willing to slacken it a bit?

    Or just drill the damn fork if it's not worth a fortune. You can DIY this. Measure twice, drill once. Start with a small drill bit and then gradually enlarge the hole with bigger and bigger bits until the hole is the right size for the brake bolt.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    I doubt it's crazy valuable but probably worth a little bit, and I just got the fork fixed by Peter Mooney. I would probably take it back to him to do a brake hole with a vice and a drill press, because me standing on it to hold it in place makes me a little nervous.
