My son who is 13 had a nasty spill off of his Specialized Hard Rock disc a couple of days ago. He was riding to school and the front fork completely snapped off of the bike. He is ok but very cut up and bruised. Stitches etc. My question - have you ever heard of this happening? - this is the type of fork -
Adjustable RST Gilla Plus-T6 disc 100mm suspension fork with 30mm Cr-Mo stanchions
It did not break off where it connects to the bike - the metal actually failed - like a stress break. He has had the bike less then a year. he does ride hard.
Would like to hear from anyone who may have had similar issues
