Okay I posted a while back about having a bent frame. And today after not riding for 4 weeks I go to break in my new topend and noticed that my bike definatly likes to turn to the right better to the left. I thought that this was my imagination at first but today I noticed it again and I mostly notice it at walking speeds when i'm just using my body weight to turn. When I lean right it will just turn naturaly and when I turn left I have to lean and crank the handle bars. Now before I go out and buy a new frame I would like to eliminate the other cheaper things. So to my question. Is there a machine that can tell if the forks are bent? I think I would rather replace a front fork tube then a frame anyday. And I would definatly like to avoide buying a new frame only to find that the front fork was bent.
