Yup, it broke. Note clean sparkly new bike. First outing. Bummer.

Looks like you over did it when you tightened that zip tie Smiling

Shear force at the most stressed point...just below the ziptie! Eye-wink

not sure if it's worth mentioning, but i think i heard from a bloke who thought he knew someone's sister's dog say that zip ties around certain part of the forks actually voids the warranty. someone else may be able to expand on this and i hope i'm wrong.
looks like the knee is pain enough aswell as trying to fight for a new fork!!
anyway hope your on the mend.

Photo looks out of focus right on the damaged section. What is the grey mark near the break?
