Just how much of a hit can that Warbird take, especially the fork?
I've been riding a Generation 1 Fargo as my "road bike" that I take out on mixed up rides including pavement, rough dirt roads, old doubletrack, and sometimes scraps of short singletrack of the sort you find in rural areas connecting adjacent neighborhoods.
The Warbird seems like a more suitable bike, at least a bit more road-oriented. But what about that fork? The Fargo's steel fork inspires confidence. If I fly down a gravel road on the Warbird and smash into a bunch of braking bumps or potholes, will I need to worry? What about a few roots on those short stretches of singletrack? Will the fork hold up to some hard hits?
