    Let's add this to the pot of mystery. Read his add and it is confusing as to whether you get a
    fork or not.

    "There are no dents, or dings or any other damage anywhere on the frame or fork."

    But, when you email asking for pictures of the fork you get: "I had advertised a Wound-up with it
    last week but had little interest. I have already sold that fork this week. So the auction is for
    just the frame and headset."

    To many inconsistencies in this guys story to give him a break.
