• Hi there, I have a Kalavinka road frame which Kevin Winter (NE UK) converted to a fixie (track ends, removing of road / brake braze ons) and did various repairs on. I now want to add the necessary braze ons for disc brakes and get a steel 1" steerer disc fork made. Any recommendations? If anyone has an up to date email contact for Kevin Winter that would be awesome...


  • I have contact details for him but the last time I spoke to him was about 3 years ago so I don’t know how up to date they are. Send me a PM and I’ll pass them onto you.

  • There are many people that can do that sort of work..are u in london?

  • Thanks guys- another question: any idea where I can get a 1" threadless fork for disc brakes?

  • Tifosi still do various 1” crabon forks, dunno if there’s a disc one.

  • Only seen the caliper version of the Tifosi, but will check it out, thanks!

  • yo wildwest i'm interested in having a 1" steel threadless disc fork made in London. You got any details for someone who can do that?
