Loose Road Fork dropout
#1
I've got a 99 schwinn circuit and one of the fork dropouts is loose. Fork is aluminum. Not sure of the dropout. I thought of gluing with Epoxy or Crazy glue or something similar. Also read up on Dura Fix. Any info. will be appreciated.

I wouldn't recommend trying to fix this yourself. Glue is really not up to the task and if this breaks while you're riding, you are going to go down hard. You can probably get a decent chromoly replacement fork for $50-$100

I second that!!! Don't repair this item the structural integrity is compromised. Just buy a new one and be safe.
