Roy, nice pick up. It was a bit big and pricey for me. I hope you talked the buyer down! But the forks are worth the asking price alone!!

:lol: :lol: :lol: model..............did i mention it's a summit? :lol: :lol: :lol:

yes that is quite the steer tube isn't it. i'd hate to have to find a syncros fork to fit that frame if it didn't have one. yes it is 1 1/8"
this frame is serial number 079.
