Just realized I spelled plastic wrong lol sry
Hi New guy here. Not new to bikes though
I was changing out my fork on my Specialized crosstrail. When taking off the suspension fork, for the new rigid replacement I found that the race on the factory fork is plastic!
Needless to say it slipped right off. I'm used to seeing metal ones that need to be worked off and on. I'm not sure if I want to put it back on. Anybody here ever find this and change it to a metal one? Can I get a metal one from anywhere? Or would I cause more problems with the wear on the bearing. This will just be a road driven bike.
,I know these major companies have gotton cheaper over the years with parts, but geeeez!
