Hey everyone. I recently killed the rear seatstay on my CAAD9 in a crash and purchased a new one. However, the new bike is white and I really don't like the look of the white fork - I'd prefer the bare carbon fork that was on my matte black bike as it will contrast well with the black accents on the bike.
The problem is that crash was pretty bad - 43mph according to my computer and about 60-70 yards of tumbling and sliding. The rear rim is tweaked about 3/4" out at one point but the front rim is still 100% true so I'm assuming it never took a major hit - even though it was the point of impact that threw me over the bars when I hit a sunken in section of concrete.
So do you think the fork would be cool to throw into the new bike? How would you check or who would you have check it in southern California to make sure it's not damaged? It's a steel steerer Cannondale Ultra fork btw.
