I am running the 425mm cro-moto with v and disc mounts on my Rocky Mountain and the 445mm disc only on my D-Jab. I agree great forks, but it looks like wiggle are out of v mount Salsa's.

Note disc only is 1045 gm.

I have to agree the On one forks are similar looking, give them a go and see how you like them. If you never try you never know.

Bottom of this thread is some information about the frame origins for pre-Solitaire single speeds.

Had the same frame, could not justify riding something so nice.
Built it With RC31s, never got on with them. 98 SIDs were the final weapon of choice.

Love the pic of the above finished build. The length of the fork looks perfect for the frame.

Re: the thread link posted above, it's nice to know I've possibly got 1 of 20 Singlespeed's made (in mk1 landy green ;-) !

That information is incorrect...
According to my '99 catalogue, the Singlespeed is new for that year, and available in Slate, Kermit Green, Guiness,Copper, Burgundy, Viper Blue and Tangerine. Listed weight is 1800gms (doesn't say what size), and frame only cost £695
