Any info about the fork? Brand, model, year... Helps somewhat.

The problem with forks is that some are for (us) big guys, and some are for climbers. Big guys can not use stuff designed for mini versions of humans. Try to find out all the particulars about that fork. Just from looking, it could be an older Icon. The new Icon AirRail OD which comes on the Treks 120 frames is good for big guys.

It may be a Kinesis fork. I say that because of the unpainted crown, which most forks do not have. I rode a similar fork on a Cannondale a few years back when I was at nearly 250 lbs with no problems. Today I am at 200 and ride on a steel fork, for what that's worth...
