    Major Damage to my '13!!

    Yup, a torn fork boot. Ordered 2 from Boats.net. I'll keep the other used one for a spare. 11,300 miles and my only real damage has been a dented rear rim and this fork boot. Not bad.

    This is catastrophic damage. I hope you can still ride it after the repair is completed.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Danger: Your bike is unsafe to ride in that condition. Immediately drain the gas from the tank, sign the title and tape it to the seat, and ship the bike to me. As a public service, I will properly dispose of this hazard at no expense to you or the great State of New York .

    While waiting for the new part just use the mans best friend, Duct tape. Two wraps is all you will need and be sure to wrap the tag end around a spoke to hold it in place.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Maybe get those BBR upgrade springs from procycle, do the swap and report back here.
