It feels like it’s been ages since I first began talking to Milwaukee Bicycle Co. about doing a Fixed Gear bike designed for the ever-evolving freestyle rider. We’ve logged in many many Gmail conversations over the past few months and finally, the fruits of our labor have begun to ripen.

Here it is, well part of it anyway, the new MKE 700c Unicrown Fork. I can’t really go into to much detail about the specifications because it’s a prototype, but I can say that it fits on my Gangsta Track fine and even gives me more clearance for barspins than the stock one did. It’s designed for a steeper HTA, so the bike handles a bit differently, but in a good way. It is not as long as the Black Market or DMR forks because it’s designed specifically for a 700c wheel. Not a rigid 26″ bike.

Within the next few weeks, you’ll see the second installment of this project. I can’t wait. Milwaukee has been great about supporting this evolving sport. Their ability to change their products based on rider feedback will set this bike apart from the rest.
