Just bent my fork in the worst bloody way today, while pressing on a fork race as part of a new headset. Well the fork is worth cents on the pound, so it isn't a huge loss.
I am in *serious* need of getting this bike back in working order though, so my questions are:
1) Those of you in Chicago, can you recommend a good bike shop with a good selection of sub-$200 threadless (preferrably) forks. I'm right in downtown. I'm gonna give Marcus a ring asap and see what's up. But he's not open till afternoon and I'd love to have the fork in my hands by noon!
2) General recommendations on sub-$200 forks (carbon would be cool, I suppose!)
