Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Fork question

Attached are 2 photos of a fork for my Synapse, the grey one is the old one and the black is the new one. The old one appears to have a bushing of some sort at the base of the steerer tube and the new one does not. I cant pry off the old one so I assume it isnt meant to come off. Is my new fork missing a part?

Its the bottom seat of the headset. It either needs to come off, or if you are buying a new headset, a new one will be included with that. A bike shop can prolly remove it for you. Your new fork is not missing anything.
