Okay so people have been saying that they look bent and its only recently I have noticed my self. It's not bad but I just need so know how to stop it if they Are bending. I have looked at stock pictures of my bike ( united kl40 expert ) and the forks don't look in the same position as mine are. The photo doesn't really show it well. I have also taken off my forks and had a look at the tube and where the forks and that pole meet there is a little metal ring and its hot a gap on the side where it seems to be bending. I have not had the bike long so I'm unsure what it is Photo

they dont look bent too bad, but they are definitely bent. call united, or buy yourself a pair of forks. Veinbmx got some nice cheap ones.

They do look a little tweaked out. I would email/call United or even 4Down Distro as they run it too. They should be replaced for sure, the bike looks brand new from what i can see!

Shouldn't try not to, just don't. I strategically let go of my bike to see it bounce around though...

My Odyssey CS2s look pretty much like that and took years of beating up from different owners, it's not that big of a deal but still something to keep in mind.
It's cool that they'll replace them.

Stock forks are pretty much guaranteed to bend somehow. I've ridden about 4 stock forks and all of them bent, problem solved when I got aftermarket forks though.

It's not hard at all to not throw your Bike, I've been riding for a year and a half and never once have I ever even been tempted to throw my Bike. It's not your Bike's fault if you bail, or you can't land something. Your Bike will get damaged if you throw it. It doesn't look cool to throw your Bike. Keep that in mind.

Throwing your bike does nothing but damage stuff.

You won't likely prevent it from getting worse, BUT you can start putting cash away for a new one. I suggest that.
