Vitus 979 Fork - dangerous?
Just checking here....I have been looking for a bargain on one of these interesting (to me at least) Vitus lugged aluminum bikes for a while & found one in town & my size....and relatively cheap. I was pretty certain from my earlier research that barring obvious lug bonding failures there were no real safety issues particular to these bikes. Now, however, I found some stuff on the road forum about the forks having been recalled for coming unbonded...ie, another kind of 'death fork.' Does anyone here know anything about this? and, if it's true, how can you tell if your fork is one that was recalled (other than that it's broken in pieces...lol). And, yes, photos of the bike are pending.
