Best forks for v-brakes?

Hi,

I am looking to upgrade the forks I run (Rockshox Judy TTs). I was looking into RS Toras as they seem to be a good for for quite a good price (had them on my Scott Scale 50 - until it was stolen!!) but have noticed there is no mount for a v-brake.
I have upgraded my v-brakes for XTs and am pretty happy with the performance and so not too fussed about upgrading to disc brakes, so was wondering what the best forks were that could be used with v-brakes?

Oh and hello as well!! Sure I'll be posting on here quite a bit now I've found it!

Rob.

Check out the Magura http://www.magura.com/english/frameset/frameset.htm. They make awesome forks and many of them are available with both V-Brake and disk mounts. Some of their models are on the pricey side, but some are quite reasonable. I’m getting the Durin for my Klein Adroit, I just have not decided on which model yet.

Tora w/v-brake mounts


The air sprung fork also has mounts for both types of brakes. A lil pricier though.

Edit: The link I gave you actually does not have v-brake as an option, however, there are many other Toras on the same site that do have that option.
