My options are to have a frame guy straighten my bent fork, or to find another fork. I'm not sure if the fork can be straightened, or how safe it will be if it is straightened. And this fork is the right fork, except that it's too long. If I get this fork, I'd actually have the frame guy cut it for me.
One more question. The bike has triple-butted tubing. I read last night that bikes with butted tubing only have the butted tubing in the three main tubes and the steerer tube. If the steerer tube is butted, will that be an additional problem Re: cutting and threading?
