    Hi

    I got wiped out by a van in Winchmore Hill a couple of weeks ago. I've replaced a severely buckled front wheel (which seems to have taken the main impact) but the bike now feels un-balanced, seems to veer off to the side when I (front) brake, and weirdly I cant ride without hands at all, wobbling all over the place and really struggling to find my balance. It feels as though the stem and bars are out of alignment although this is clearly not the problem.

    The frame (steel singlespeed) looks fine, no external damage or obvious buckles, bends or dents etc although it's now tough to site the front wheel equidistant from each leg of the fork, although its only off by small amount, no rubbing etc.

    Do I replace the fork, replace the frame or buy a new one?

    Thanks, opinions, experience welcome.
