2004 Bianchi Volpe - fork replacement sugestions
#1
Hi, I have a 2004 Bianchi Volpe:
http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/BikeSpecs.aspx?Year=2004&Brand=Bianchi&Model=Volpe&Type=bike#.UUZatRn1dkU

The forks are bent due to a car roof rack and garage mishap and not really sure where to start if I replace myself. Any suggestions to a fork that will be just like the stock fork or at least similar and will take all the same components?

Thanks for any info.

The specs say you have a 1 in. threadless with brake bosses 700c.
that will be tough to find a quality one. here is one on the fly if the tube is long enough. How long is yours?

Thanks, I think that work good. I measured the tube on the bianchi fork and it's somewhere around 10.25". The one on ebay is 260mm which is about 10.25".

The 1 in. threadless with brake bosses makes it a tough one to get. good luck, all it takes is money right?
