• I have a Genesis Croix De Fer touring fork, front ended in a collision with an inept motorist.

    No cracks, but the wheel sits in the dropouts one or two degrees off square.

    If you have the equipment / experience and think you can fix for less than the cost of a new fork, AND you're south / central london based, lemme know.

    Also interested in advice on DIY solutions. I have some basic tools but not sure where to start with this.

    Can post pics tomorrow if any interest, cheers

  • Remove front wheel. Place the bike on carpet/soft ground. Put your foot against the headtube, grab the fork leg with your hand and pull. Place a true wheel in the fork and check alignment. Repeat until done.

  • Got a black CDF disc fork you can have for £20 if you end up replacing instead.
    Based in SE.

  • I would take it to Winston Vaz in Hither Green.

    He is a master at this kind of thing and not expensive.
