Nice frame. Will be watching this. Is it a jump frame?

Sektors are reasonably priced and would suit?

Wouldn't bother buying fox if I were you, unless you pay top dollar for their FIT cartridge, there not worth it. A decent rockshox fork (sektor, revelation etc.) will perform better

Cheers I thought this might be the case. Like I said I cant find 1.5" tapered 150mm Sektors, I've seen some revelations that might suit

Here's mine with my current fox 32 float rlc fit 150mm. I just ordered a brand new revelation fork in black. This is my second hornet frame and I think 150mm is ideal travel for this frame. Another fork to consider would be a 2013 marzocchi 44 micro switch. Excellent I hear.

They thought they had the 2012 frame in stock, but they don't. I'm getting a 2013 like yours now. In black aswell. Could you link me to the revelations you've ordered?

Unfortunately I scored my fork on eBay for cheap. I've been looking for a deal on one for a few months and finally found one. Yes my frame is a 14inch. Are you ordering from 26bikes.com?

Nope slam69. Oh ok. I've been keeping my eye out as well, no luck yet. Watch this space I'm sure something will happen sooner or later

Check with 26bikes. They might have the year size and color you want. I had a excellent service with them.

These forks do have fit, there 450 but that's with a sale on from 800 so it seems like quite a good deal. I am tempted to be honest as the frame was cheap considering
