Not a race lite, but advertised as such.

Fork legs look more like tange switchblades than bontrager ones. Drop outs look cheap

What makes you think that...?

I would think its a Race rather that a Race lite, and the fork is a Bontrager Race too.

Fair price for the condition too imho.

I thought the bontrager ones weren't tapered.

You'll know much better than me though.

True, but they just don't seem to turn up in the UK.

I nearly bought the one you spotted in Germany via a friend who lives there but just missed out by a couple of euros.
