    One point five steel hardtails--who makes them?

    Dear all,

    I'm wondering if there are any companies out there that are currently making steel hardtail frames with a 1.5" head tube. If there are, which makes/models would they be?

    TIA,

    ECB

    It doesn't? A guy at school has one, and I thought i saw an FSA Pig headset on it, and it looked like a 1.5". I"m probably mistaken though.

    The Steelhead is definitely 1 1/8. The 1.5 headset from FSA is Big Fat Pig.

    Why steel and 1.5?

    Oh. Whatever. But my other friend's IronHorse SGS also has a FSA Pig, not a big fat pig, and i'm pretty sure that's 1.5.
