Fork done for ?
Buddy rides a Klein Aeolus Tri bike, 1994 and while attempting to replace headeset, noticed dual cracks across the back of the fork.
The cracks appear to be where the fork blades were bonded to the fork crown and do not appear to separate when pressure is applied. I believe the fork is aluminum, it's certainly not carbon at that vintage and as it's the stock fork.
Still, I wouldn't be riding this bike.
So he needs a new fork. Trouble is it's [EDIT 650C] and 1" threaded, so can be 1" threadless as well, but who makes such an animal, besides WoundUp, which is way out of price range.
My general opinion is New Bike as he's long overdue, but told him I'd do what I can...
