I wish that when I bought my Slingshot frame I would have just added the extra $50 I could have a rigid fork. As such since I knew I was going to race on the bike I passed. Every so often I am tempted into turning mine into a single speed fixie.

Turned out really well. Do you still have the bike? Lately they seem to be getting popular again. So much so that the price on a vintage frame is close to what is was new in the day. Mine was $750.00 without a fork. I've ridden mine hard in races and another almost 20 years just on the trails. The only thing I have to really do is to rebuild the Rock Shox Mag 21's. Perhaps one of these days I'll switch over to a newer fork but for now it's a daily survivor that is not given quarry. Still is ridden hard and keeps going disk wheel and all. I keep waiting for that thing to blow up someday like all my clear ones did during races.
