    Bontrager Ti Lite conversion to single speed

    Hi, I have recovered from a dark corner of my attic a Ti Lite. I would like to turn it into a single speed with a rigid fork. Any ideas on the rebuild and where to get a I" suspension corrected rigid fork. I can't seem to find any thing. Would I be better off building a new wheelset with lighter rims etc. ? Thanks

    Tange makes a fork with a shorter axle to crown dimension, around 400mm if I'm not mistaken. As a frame of reference, a Salsa Cro-Moto fork corrected for 80mm of travel is 425mm axle to crown.

    Vicious Cycles will build you a fork with the correct axle-crown. Build an ENO eccentric wheel rather than fooling around with tensioners.

    I have both on my SS-ed Race Lite and I couldn't be happier. Unless I was to ever swap all the parts over to a Ti Lite.

    Check the Classifieds and Ebay

    There are 2-3 forks on Ebay, and one in the classifieds right now that may work for you, check the links below:
