At last my frame is back, more on that later, with it I have the old forks back and can see with some horror the crack. This photo is taken from where the axle of the wheel would be looking up the steerer. There is a similar, if smaller crack on the other side.
The consequence of the fork breaking in use does not bear thinking. It seems all the regular tweaking of my bikes needs to include and even better inspection of things like the forks.
The frame now has new forks and now I no longer have a cantilever brake on the front but instead long drop dual pivot side pull.
