Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Allez Fork Size

Does Specialized use a 1 1/4" fork size on any of their allez frames? My friend just bought an allez frame and in putitng it together his 1 1/8" fork seems to be quite small for this fork. Maybe its a unique headset? Looking for any and all info/advice. Thanks!
