Subject:Should I take my bike in for a check by the LBS?
I raced on Saturday in Long Branch, NJ on a course that has some pretty gnarly pavement. At one point during the bike, I was taking a sweeping turn while on my base bar and drilled a pothole. I immediately felt the front end drop by what felt like 2 or 3". I pulled over, check the bike, and couldn't see any damage. Wheels are true & not harmed (I hope), tires not flat, nothing missing. BUT my base & aero bars rotated about 20 degrees down from horizontal while in the stem. No creaking or cracking, and after my amateur once over everything seems to be okay.
I've never had this happen before. I looked the bike over again today and can't find any problems. That being said, should I still bring it in to the shop for a professional once-over?
