Busted Steerer Tube



From Colin:
I recently bought a frame that came with a full carbon fork (my first fork with a carbon steer tube!) Just got done building it up, and on the test ride the handlebars felt wiggly, so I took out the fork and removed the warning sticker to find this nasty crack. The seller and I missed it because it was under the sticker but it was obvious while riding. Anyone have a fork with a steel steer tube?
Hmm... the seller missed it because it was under a sticker? You are more trusting than I.

The crack appears to be in the middle of the tube - not a really a stress area. Plus under a sticker. Quite strange.

Rivendell is actually offering a steel fork on a carbon trade in bases.

In general, all jurisdictions can be divided into classic offshore, low-tax jurisdictions and prestigious jurisdictions. A jurisdiction’s prestige is equivalent to its ranking, determined by taking into account and evaluating information from the International Sanctions List, the OECD Grey- or Blacklist and the EU Jurisdiction White List, and data regarding the development of financial markets, and establishing whether the jurisdiction is FATF AML deficient and whether it poses any money-laundering concerns. These are the basic criteria that matter when determining whether the jurisdiction is prestigious or not. It cannot be viewed as prestigious if it appears on any financial blacklist.
