THIS IS NOT A POLL> However, now that I have a carbon fork purchased in my newbie phase I'm wondering if it was a mistake made by the utterly human, partially educated, quite over-enthusiastic -- me... Who wants part of their bike to fail? Okay, easy answer to that question. Nobody. I ride 10 miles a day on roads that are pocked in places. Sometimes I've got a lightly filled pack in the back. No wild stunts for me. I need to get from here to there and prefer to do it on my new fast bike and zippily but do not race and almost certainly never will. But should I worry? I'm having steel envy. This does not rise to the level of buyer's remorse. I just fell for that bike hard (and then fell while on it hard... whoops!) But what's the view out there in bike forum land? Is this a faddish wave I caught?
