    Bent Fork

    After some pretty hard riding at UCSC, i noticed that my fork was bent.

    It this dangerous?

    You bent the steerer tube.. By any chance, is this an RST Gila?
    My friend did the exact same thing.
    You need a new fork buddy

    That is definitely not a Gila
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    yeah i was trying to convince my parents to get me a new one. So its kind of a good thing.

    its a spinner ammo 1 150mm travel. It sucks ass and tends to lock up on me (oil flow?)

    Do you think it will be rideable until i get a new fork? or is that asking for a disaster?

    It can be ridden lightly, but more than that you are asking for trouble.

    400 bucks will get you a nice Rockshox Domain

    400?
    wtf you smoking... Its $330 for me with lbs discount, and its 550 online...
    if you can find a retail 400 be glad.

    edit:
    call up your lbs and tell them to order you a domain 302 from seattle bike supply. they have a sale @ 289.99 until the 31st.
    order quick..

    Stop riding that fork immediately. I had a bent steerer and I rode it for a few days and ended up with an ovalized head tube. It could've been as a result of the drop I took but I think riding it jacked my frame up.

    Could you get me a better deal for a 66 RC2 ETA?

    Still, if you want other choices give Chad a call
