Killing forks.. Woot!
Oh well. I guess at the 5,479.7 mile point when I finally get under the official weight limit for the bike it had done it's best. On the ride home last night bike started pulling left on using the front brake right out of the parking lot. Checked a couple times and finally found the left fork blade cracked almost all the way around. Aluminum disc brake fork.
Bacchetta is actually sending me out a new fork and they want the old one back. I'm just glad the fork gave some warning it was about to go.
Had to call the wifey who was on vacation to give me a lift for the rest of the 19 miles.. bummer first sag ride ever
