Alright, Im ashamed to admit it but I bent my bike.
approx 40km/hr impact under full throttle with an immovable object. left quite the bruise!
currently not working due to health issues (unrelated) and want very much to try to get the bike back on the road. Its not worth much, but hey its my first bike!
dealer wants 3k for two forks and a rim...
have been reading a lot on here (and everywhere else) that the suspension seems to be the weakest link on the bike.
If im going to have to drop money, why not make improvements at the same time?
very mechanically minded, but new to bikes.
found a wrecked bike/salvage yard that can get used parts for 1 grand...are there better options on a budget?
really appreciate the help, and any motivation I can get at this point.
