I have a set of Rock Shox Indy, 1 inch threaded, and would be very grateful for any suggestions for a frame to go with these.

In other words, what would you be looking for in my situation?!

Any thoughts or suggestions gratefully received :D

Personally I would look for a frame first, then select a fork to suit. You could fit a reducer headset so any frame would do.
The Indy wasn't that great a fork - narrow-shouldered and squirmy.

But if you insist, a pre-1994 (say 92 or 93) Kona Hahanna or Fire mountain would have the 1" head tube.

I agree, frame first is the best way. Thanks for the suggestions!

Keep em coming!
