So in a totally uninteresting way I cracked the fork on my 09 Fuji Track Pro. The crack runs almost all the way around the blade of the fork, the paint is chipping and applying a bit of pressure to it creates cracking sounds. I think it's in my best interests to say it's shot. Now on to replacing it:
I could call Fuji and see if they have any sort of replacement. Their recent entry-level aluminum bikes share many elements of the 09 FTP, so I would wager that they'd be able to supply an appropriate part. I'm just concerned about cost. Does anyone either recommend calling them or have experience with this sort of thing?
I could also simply just buy a new fork. The replacement that I've been using came off of my girlfriend's track bike, a Fuji Track Comp from the same year. Her's has an axle to crown measurement of 370mm, while mine was 368mm. There seems to be no appreciable difference in handling. That being said, I'm looking mostly at these forks that Retrogression has:
The guy that owns Retrogression is a very active member here on Bikeforums. He's a great guy and I've ordered lots of stuff from him. I've asked him to comment in this thread or you can contact him directly. He knows his stuff.
