Judy TT, disc brake compatible?

Do I need to chuck this fork of some cliff or is it disc brake compatible?

Well it's compatible...but the question is do you want to use it for disc brakes? It's not the stiffest fork out there, it's cheap...but it is complatible. It has the two IS tab holes on the lower left leg...that's where the brake caliper mounts to. Depending on what your funds are and what your riding style is, you may want to get a new fork. The fork will work, just might flex a bit, and I'm sure later on you'll upgrade it....so it's up to you

I realize the TT's bite but unfortunately its all i have right now. My style of riding a little xc with a little urban with a little freestyle. I'm toying with the idea of maybe getting an RST Sigma '99... becuase its cheap and the reviews are pretty good, but that will be a little while... just checkin out my options.

The TT should hold up for a while, my girlfriends running one, and actually haven't really had to many issues with it. I'm sure it will do fine as long as you go jumping off of buildings.
