Planet X T.O.R frame and fork.

Hi, I have a Planet X T.O.R bike which I have rarely used in the track. I want to convert it to road use as a fixie/ss, however the front fork is not pre-drilled for brake boss.

Question, has anyone undertaken this task, did it work, or is there an alternative fork suitable to swap?

Thanks in advance

    I'd sell it and buying something suitable. I have a Track TOR which I use exclusively on the track, I don't know why but it just doesn't seem as robust as my other carbon frames. I wouldn't rate its chances as a town bike.

    HI, thanks for your feedback. I am actually quite in awe of the bike, it feels quite relaxed. I occasionally venture out onto quite country roads with it where I know there is nil or very little traffic and I can get an uninterrupted ride. I don't want to use it as an everyday bike, but really use it a bit more widely than I do at present. Brakes offering a bit more confidence when riding. In that sense I am keen to keep hold of it.

    Why not speak to Planet X ? They're very helpful I find.

    I bet you'll be needing a new fork though.

    Hi, I spoke to Plant X, but they are unsure which fork would work because of the recesssed union between head/down tube and forks. They suggest try the Exocet 2, but they are unsure of the clearance behind the forks, so my question is has anyone tried it successfully.
