Center pull brakes on new fork
Has anyone upgraded a suspension fork to a rigid and kept older center pull cantilever brakes on it?
I have an older Rockhopper that I took to have looked at for replacing the fork. The LBS mechanic told me that I'd need new brakes, shifters, etc. He said that it would cost almost $300 when all was said and done..
Then I was shown some new bikes.
I'm not sure that I was being taken for a ride
, but it seemed that there must be some rigid suspension adjusted MTB fork that could take my current brakes. (I want to keep them because I have drop bars and Road bike brake levers on the bike, and V brakes don't like my levers...not to mention the cost savings).
Thanks for any ideas.
