Speaking of front forks...

Got a bit too comfortable on some trails near my house and a tree and I got in a bit of a fight.

Thought I got off clean,but I was looking today and it looks like my front fork is bent. I will be replacing it at some point and now I have a good reason to justify it to my wife. The triple tree looks fine, its just the tubes. I don't really want to spend $1500 on OEM fork assemblies.


That said...

1) What do people have a good experience with? I just need something affordable - i'm guessing that means cannibalizing something from another bike.

2) How long can I wait before replacing the current fork? What issues might I run into if I don't replace it for a few hundred / thousand miles?
