Hey - just checking to see the general opinion on the lifespan of a 'basic' carbon road fork... in particular, I ride a 07 Genesis Flyer which has the original forks, which have been ridden pretty hard for the last 7 years. I don't see any signs of cracking or damage but I've always viewed carbon bike components (probably wrongly) to be more fragile than their metal counterparts so I'm thinking if it's time for a change?
Whilst looking around I have seen to possible options from BLB, namely the
AVENTON LITE FORK - CARBON
BLB AF02 CARBON FORK
Does anyone have any experience with either of these??
