Is it possible to break a fork spring?
I just rode from South Florida to Fort Worth. Passing through Shreveport at night, I hit a series of severe bumps on I-20. I'd guess that there were 30 in all. It was like riding over a succession of 2X4s. I guess the problem was pavement heaving of some type, creating vicious bumps that were difficult to see (and anticipate) at night.
Now that I'm in Fort Worth, I noticed that the bike tends to want to drift to the right under braking. When I park the bike and push down on the bars, it seems that the right fork has little resistance, while the left fork still resists being pushed down.
Do you think I broke the right fork spring?
Also, if anyone has recommendations for a bike shop in Fort Worth, preferably on the west side, I'm all ears.
