    A LBS that carries Specialized and good luck. If that is a 120 frame, don't get a fork with travel greater than 130.

    Find out how much all the parts are going to cost to fix it BEFORE you put your cash down. It may even be cheaper to buy an intact new frame.

    I see, im going to get some info first then, i dunno if i should buy it, the frame seems in very good condition, but its being sold by only 100$ so im kinda suspicious about it.

    Thanks

    I'd already be suspicious since it is missing the "seat stay" section. If you so get it and built, its a great bike. I just picked a '06 Expert Stumpy FSR "Test Bike" off my LBS last week. I paid way less than the 2800 MSRP given it had been demo'd a few times. I can't wait to put more miles on it.

    unless you have a basket of parts in the basement, it will be a lot cheaper to buy this bike complete at any lbs. I bought my kid a 2004 SJ FSR disc with Shimano hydro brakes, 100mm black fork & fox float R shock for $1650CAD ($1485 USD)
