I should have just bought a new one....

I have heard that the frame of my winter bike is o.k. and will be fine when repainted. Alas in the same phone call the forks are not fine, having a crack across the crown. So it is a new set of forks, headset & stem. I suppose it is much better finding out this way than while riding.
I am left with the feeling I would have been happier, if poorer, if I had just bought a whole new bike. However that is true most weeks
