some pics of my bob jackson above.....round forks and no problems with juddery braking
That was your TT BJ?....Was there much toe overlap?....Would there be much toe overlap using track forks?....Any idea what the rake would be on standard 531 track forks?
Here is what Sheldon Brown had to say about round track forks:
'Track bike fork blades are usually round instead of oval, as those of a road bike are. This makes them stiffer and more rigid laterally, a good thing for hard out-of-the-saddle sprinting, which can apply considerable side loads. Unfortunately, they are less rigid front-to-back, so if you fit a brake, the fork may flex objectionably when the brake is applied.'
Do you disagree with him or is there any truth in what he is saying?

In that thread Dave Moulton def disagrees with SB!...Who is the greater legend..DM or SB? [with apologies to Danger Mouse and Dave Marsh]
I would rather keep track frame and track forks together...given the choice unless there is a good scientific reason for separating them and replacing the track forks with a 531 road variant.
