I bought a set of wheels of grass track bike for my fixie frame but had to put road forks on to fit brake only problem is wheel wont fit.
Is there fork that can take my wheel with hole for brake?


  • Could you clarify in which plane the wheel doesn't fit the forks. It could be that you're trying to fit a 27in wheel/tyre combo into a 700c fork, which could cause issues if the fork is designed for close clearance.
    Though you could also consider simply drilling the origianl fork so that you can fit a brake.

    Thanks Pete went to take photo as you asked and wheel dropped straight on no idea what i did first time round.
    I have built 6 geared bikes but couldnt put a wheel on my fixie hope i dont get a puncture.
