Help please guys, I'm in the Alps and today Started getting a odd creaking from the headset. Nothing major but it started to get worse so cam off the mountain a little early. Have just removed the fork to find a 1.5 inch crack in the steerer tube starting from the top.
So, I'm just about to drill a small hole at the bottom of the crack to stop it increasing, but is it safe to ride? The stem will keep the crack closed and the head Dr will keep it from folding in.
Is the crack weld able or is it new uppers? New upper last year via MoJo so don't really want to spend more on the fork!
Or do I buy some new ones here for a very inflated price??
