My bike is being shipped back to Kona for wty because one side of the steel fork is forward of the other side of the fork; consequently the wheel is pushed to the left side of the fork, no where near being centered.
I rode my friend's bike tonight, same size, alum frame like mine, but lighter with a carbon fork, & 32 tires vs my 37's.
The ride was extremely comfortable compared to my Dew Drop. All the bumps felt muffled almost like I was riding with suspension compared to my Dew Drop. The question I had is: Could the crooked fork & tire cause my ride to feel that harsh?
I hope so because then when I get it back it'll feel much better; otherwise I guess I just need to get used to it.

depending on tire/psi/fork material (too lazy to find out what it is) it very could be a diff
i know from a steel to aluminum fork its rougher, but then steel to carbon its better. type of carbon weave also has influence.
fatter tire will do more than a fork though
