New fork

Postby Pushy » Sat Sep 22, 2007 9:30 pm

Just picked up a new fork for the bike. Giants price for the replacement fork for the TCR was close to $500. I liked the look of http://www.pro-lite.net/content/detail/giavanni.htm better and was $150 down from 300

sorry about the link... I tried

Absolutely right, but could not resist such a saving. Depending on the outcome of the police report (aportioning blame) I will quite likely get the TCR fork and keep the pro-lite fork for the Apollo.
As for which fork is better than another? Its anyone's guess, without any scientific standards for comparison, I'm basing my selection on appeal alone.
