    As others stated already, it's the same exact fork with the Langster's one.

    No, it's not, I have the same issue on both wheels now. Been away for the weekend, but will try again tonight, thanks for the advice.

    Their reply:

    "As the Langster Pro is a track race frame, it does not have a hole for a front brake in the fork. The standard Langster does have a hole in the fork, but it is designed for road use rather than track race and so has a different geometry which may compromise the Pros handling. I would suggest searching for an aftermarket fork to suit that is compatible with a front brake and going from there."

    I've emailed them asking whether I can purchase the fork separately if this one I have it's not drilled then covered.

    I understand that very well, thanks for making me aware of it. WIll also consider your advice.

    I am mainly driven by aesthetics and by the fact other people have done this with no issues and I also know that the Pro fork it's not really a proper track fork .

    Will email Specialized and see what they say. Other than that, how would I find out before attempting to drill it?

    I wish it was that easy in my case but this guy's fork wasn't drilled apparently. There's an image with a Langster fork pre drilled and a Pro fork drilled.

    Oh, I didn't know that.. so is it legal to ride with a fixed cog and just a brake?

    I get that, OK, but I didn't even consider this as I never had a brake fail on me? As I said, my commute to work is quite short, less than 2 miles and I rarely go Super Man.

    Yes and switch every now and again with a fixed cog so I can get used to it.
