    N + 1/2

    I just found out that I won a frame and fork on ebay. The Frame is a Lemond Poprad 59cm with a Bontrager carbon fork. I saw it on ebay and thought it would be nice if I could buy it cheap and put the carbon fork on my Poprad and resell it with my aluminum fork. I put in a semi serious bid and won the thing. Now I am excited about getting a bike that is too big for me.

    If it's too big for you, are you sure your aluminum fork will fit in it?

    This is one of the derivitives of Murphy's law. If it had been the right size, it would have sold for about 3 times the max you were willing to pay. In this case though........if it's got a fork in it, your done.

    Good find.

    It is only one size bigger than my current bike and my fork tube is not cut off real short so it should fit. If not I will have a spare fork to put with my other stuff I might need some day.
