ASK THE BMXPerts: BENT FORKS
Bookmark and Share

I bent my forks on my stolen riot this weekend and I am wondering what would be the best route for me to take. I think it has a standard headset and all the forks I have looked at say they are for integrated headsets only. If you could let me know what to do that would be great.

ANS- There are a lot of forks out there that will work with your bike. A good rule of thumb is if the fork costs as much as your bike did, it probably wont work with your bike. Brands like Nice, Nitrous, Shadow and Stolen all offer what you need for around $100. You just want to avoid forks that come with an integrated bearing race, as your headset required a press fit model. Look for a full chromoly, possibly even heat-treated fork and nip that fork bending issue in the bud, bub.
