The seller is allthingsbikes,i think he gets bikes and splits them. I don't know what they do with the forks though coz they're never with the frames or for sale separately :?

Are they like the seller says 1 1/4" head tubes?

Yes, 1.1/4"
They have a website which lists parts they have I believe.

Looks like he has or had the forks.
To sell this without the forks if he has them is silly IMHO.

Seller is well know for douchey trading tactics... Seen him split frames, forks and even matching stems just to make a few $ more.

Quite how he classes himself as an enthusiast I don't know... It's all about the Benjamins :facepalm:

I know i don't understand why they split the frame and forks,the mechs etc i can understand. If it had the forks i'd have probably gave in by now and hit the bin button but as it is i'll give it a miss.

It would be a good price with the forks IMHO.
I think these frames don't look right with any other fork*


*except possibly a Manitou.
