    Newbie Q on Fork image....

    What is going on here?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/FRAME-FORK-PAKE-...3A1%7C294%3A50


    Why is that tube sticking out so much?!? Is the buyer expected to chop that down?? I have no idea what is going on and know of no place better than here to ask...


    Innocent enough question yah?

    Yes - most framesets come with an uncut steerer tube on the fork, so that people can leave it as tall as they'd like. That one does look a bit excessive though, haha.
