Ey up

I've just picked up a bargainacious 2007 Scalpel frame (last year with 60ishmm travel)

Didnt come with forks, not particularly fussed about finding a set of leftys . Already have a headset to enable fitting of 1 1/8" Forks to C.Dale head tube. so happy to fit a pair of "normal" twin leg sus forks

Anyone know what sort of a-c measurement i'll need forkwise to suit?

Andy

I went with some SIDs on mine, Lefty's are great but just can't get over how they look and it limits the wheel choice somewhat. The Scalpel is an XC racer so SIDs pretty much fit that slot and always have. I have the 2011 frame with 80mm travel and the current 100mm fork suits well, perhaps some with 80mm travel would be best for yours to keep the geometry right ?

Fox F80's. Seem to be a fair few pairs knocking about for not too much cash.
