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.
