    noob hello and question

    first of all i'd like to say hi all

    bought a bike from flea bay a few months back , its a pile of junk but i caught the bug ..... so been buying bits and bobs to build a better bike up ..... in my noob ignorance i bought an o7 stinky frame which i painted , new bearings etc etc ..... also bought a set of fox 36 fit rlc forks ........ tapered

    i didnt realise ..... obviously the forks wont fit the bike so my questions are ......

    1. can i fix the situation ? yes or no and how
    if no ....
    2. do i sell the forks and buy anouther set
    3. do i sell the frame and buy anouther

    please take into account i can only buy a replacement for either with the funds i get by selling .... i might be able to raise an extra 40 - 50 quid

    all opinions gratefully recieved

    1. the stanchions are press fit so short of getting a new crown/steerer/stanchions set no
    2. yes
    3. after all the work it'd be silly to scrap the frame for a fork
    4. you have a fork. A "set of forks" would be 2 forks.
