On thanksgiving last year I crashed my bike while going around a corner @ 25mph... I blacked out, so I don't know exactly what happened... I had some pretty deep bruises (which only recently healed), and a bad road rash (still have red marks on my arm, wrist and fingers), but I didn't break anything (thank god).
There was some minor damage to the bike.. but I didn't worry about getting it fixed at the time, since the season was over, and thanksgiving was one of the last semi-warm days of the year here in Denver.
So here's my question: we've all heard the warnings about carbon: "Damaged fiber can fail suddenly ...", etc. I have a carbon fork.. I don't think it was damaged, but I don't really know.. Is there anyway I can tell?
the LBS will be in a better position to determine if it is still useable.
they have the experience and tools(?) to check.
i don't know if you want to risk riding on it by checking it yourself.
you may not want another incident
