fork size on '03 Fuji Roubaix Pro

Does anyone know if a 2003 Fuji Roubaix Pro frame takes a 1" or 1 1/8" fork? The frame is Reynolds 853 if that helps.

This is just a guess since I don't have the specifics of that frame but, given it's recent vintage and high-line tubing, I'd bet a fair amount it's 1-1/8".

found it

I should have checked the database on bikepedia
I pulled the trigger on this frame and fork with a King Headset on ebay for about $400 shipped. The frame looked unridden . I already have an '01 Lemond Buenos Aries, and I really liked the tube set, so it's hard to pass on a similar frame when it pops up.

Or you could have measured it.

I assumed the OP had bought the frame on e-bay or similar and didn't have it yet.

I'd loose my bet. According to bikepedia the headset (and fork, naturally) is 1".

Ah, that would explain it. My bad.
FWIW I was guessing 1 1/8" also.

I don't have the frame in my hands yet, and I have my eye on a particular fork which won't be available by the time the frame arrives. I could have asked the seller, I suppose.
It looks like '03 was the last year the Roubaix Pro was 1", the '04 switches to 1 1/8".
