    1.5 inch head tube

    Could you guys name some bikes made with a 1.5" head tube please?
    I bought a couple sets of forks that didn't have the tube diamater stated. Turned out to be 1.5 inch. Sold one set on ebay for $50 more than I paid, but the other set won't sell.
    So I will just get a frame and use them in a AM or DH build. I just have no idea what frames take a 1.5 inch steer tube.

    Thanks

    The Demo has a 1.5'' head tube, but not a 1.5" steerer.

    Most modern dh/fr bikes have a 1.5 headtube, and there are headsets that will allow you to fit a 1.5 steer tube in a 44mm/ 1 1/8"ZS headtube. Your options are pretty open, you probably need to specify what kind of frame you're looking for.

    awesome reply's thanks

    I@ ben, I don't know what I want yet. I'm going to keep an eye on ebay for these names and see what is available and what price. Anything in ranging in the 2000's years will do. I have a set of 140mm Manitau Sherman flick shox, 20mm through bolt and 1.5 steer tubs. Brand new condition. They seem very sturdy. I'll build the bike around those since no one on ebay wanted them. I be more than happy to keep them and build my self a DH/FR bike

    Because buying 5 would just be silly.

    I'm finding a few Intense frames out there more than others. I'll post if I find one and get it.

    I got 4 frames. 2 I'm keeping, 2 I'm building and selling.... Still lookng for 1 more ladys bike frame for my GF. I got a guy with a felt frame talked down to 250, working on it for 200 though.

    What forks did you buy? It might help narrow down the field of frames available to you.
