All the Langsters I've seen use normal road fork dimensions (~370 atc, 45mm offset), so you shouldn't need a specific replacement. Even my 2007 model has a brake-drilled road fork, just with less offset.

i think the strength of the field you're in will have the biggest impact on what gear you chose.

I also wish I would have had my power meter installed to compare. I have no real idea if I was faster or slower with that gearing.
It was my first day sprinting with non-beginners, my first flying 200, and my legs were slightly smoked from racing the day before.

i choose a gear based on speed of the field and type of race (smaller gear for a miss and out or something with a lot of sprints, like a snowball or tempo, bigger gear for keirin, scratch, etc).

way back when, i did the first fast twitch friday of the season where they let you do as many flying 200s as you want... i rode nearly the same time in all 3 gears i tried.
