Greetings! So I'm interested in purchasing this DeRosa but the front fork seems to be bent. Is it possible for someone who knows what they're doing to repair it (and then for me to ride it)? I'm about 165 lbs if that makes any difference. Thanks! Check out the pic at http://eprentice.sdsu.edu/F036/Strachan/derosa001.jpg And by chance, do any of you know what the seat tube angle is?

I would consider this fork only slightly bent and could be straightened cold without damage to the paint by someone with the know how and equipment to re-align it. Make sure the down tube doesn’t have a ripple under the down tube near the head lug.
