    Well...yesterday at Keystone in my first practice run for dual slalom, I pretty much dead sailored a stepup, cased it with my front wheel, was sent over the bars, face first into the tranny, then my body scorpioned over my head. :eek: Needless to say I was a bit disoriented afterwards and I"m sure probably got a small concusion or something like that. My friend said he saw the top of my full face make contact with the middle of my back. :eek: But most importantly, my bike is broken. :( Anybody have a singlecrown fork you'd want to give/sell me? (hella cheap of course, like a black or judy or old dj or something)


    Atleast it'll make a somewhat cool wall ornament. :p

    Glad you are ok. No fork here, but check the hell out of that head tube.

    What were you doing using a rigid fork for DS in the first place?

    Yeah I bet I could allow that. Its a DJ1 03' but some of the parts on the QR20 are missing. Like the little bolts, but I might have some more, only one problem, I just got to school, so my mom would have to help me, and you could send the payments to me at school.

    i second that...i'd check out the headtube junctions....if you were able to bend a rigid fork like that, the headtube must have taken one hell of a shot.

    It's fine. Just turn your stem around 180 degrees.

    BAMF?

    I thought it would be fun to style it up rigid. And that's how my hardtail was setup. More than likely I'll be getting a DJ or something now (from Price most likely). I have yet to check the headtube, not quite sure what to expect from that. :p
