I'll pair a steel frame with a steel fork or a WB carbon as they tend to match the narrow tubes of the frame. If the frame is carbon, scandium, aluminum that's oversized, hydroformed,, tapered head tube, etc. I'd consider some of the carbon fork options, like the Niner or if you want something more subtle, the Whiskey Parts carbon. There's tons of info and feedback on ride quality if you search, but the brands I mentioned tend to be the more popular choices. I like the quality of the Niner over the WB, but I've learned through my own trials that my preference is steel, and right now, I'm loving the Vassago Odis on my Jabber.

    Then lo and behold today the guys at Salvagetti removed the Singleator and a few links, and Presto! Magic Gear Ratio! Happy to be on a "true" singlespeed now.

    Now gotta build up those Rabbit Holes...

    I am sure you could sell those cranks for a pretty penny and have cash left over after a purchase of a BEER EBB and a standard crank. I just put a Beer on my Cannondale Alloy 1 and it's pretty boss and allows so many more future options.
