So ya, was hit by a car Tuesday and just got around to taking my fork to the bike shop to have it checked out. The shop said it was compromised, there is some clouding near one of the dropout inserts as well as a bulge, and the dropouts don't line up right anymore.
So now I need a new fork, which I'm having trouble finding what I want. Things to look for:
•needs to fit right on an oversized headtube. You can see my previous one didn't and it looked funky because of that
•carbon steerer is very preferred
•350g is ideal, 400 is okay, 450 is pushing icky
•I really like the time trial/bladed fork look, this kinesis is one of my favorite looking forks. I would really like something similar in design.
•and for the sake of the people who hit me, under $300 would be great.
What suggestions do you have that meets a few if not all of those criteria?
edit: and I hate curved fork blades on aluminum bikes, so none of those pretty please.
