Shudder has been beaten to death in dozens if not hundreds of threads here and elsewhere.
Usually enough toe in to reduce braking power will stop it.
One of the biggest causes is the fork flexing under braking, which pulls the brake cable tighter. Mounting the cable stop at the crown usually stops it.
Mini-Vs always stop it.
Way rigid forks usually stop it.
Rim / Pad combinations that are less prone to grabbing often stop it.
Google and search threads here and about the web.
Mostly if it isn't scary bad, we learn to live with some of it. It usually happens worst on pavement at low speed which is not a real big deal.
