    I'm confused, I thought I requested a 1080 pure! They come in to sizes 1065-1080?
    My dilema is I measured the wheelbase tonight in fear that I have bent another pair of forks. Sad thing is I did not measure the bike the day it arrived, I just assumed it was a 1080, like I ordered.
    So my measurment reads 1075 with which I believe has bent outward forks.
    So how do you measure the frame to figure out the size, and does anybody know the frame sizes of the pure, not just wheelbase.
    One other thing to mention I have Echo Urban forks not Pures.

    they measure the pure frame wb with the pure fork. if you run the urban it may come out a little shorter. i wouldnt worry about your forks being bent. what they advertise is not always true. even things like a different headset can change your wheelbase from what they claim.

    Kevin, with that measurment of 1075, you think my forks are not bent.

    Thanks for the reply!

    i doubt they are bent. when my forxx got bent my wheelbase went from 1085 to 1070ish... that bent. 5mm is nothing to worry about.
