    Squealing Brakes and Missing Google-fu

    I have real issues with brake judder and squeal on my carbon forked cx bike. I met someone while riding who solved this on his cx bike by switching to a fork crown mounted brake hanger.

    The only problem is I can't find a uk supplier for one. Any ideas?

    I don't know if this is a true, I have a crown mounted one on my steel fork and it was squealing last night though I am a little overdue for some brake adjustment.

    I have a carbon fork on my Giant TCX and had squeal I couldn't get rid of, the bike had Avid shorty cantis on it. I replaced the Avids with Tektro CR720s and no issues now. What brakes are you running?
    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

    The current brakes are Shimano BR-A550 and this is a cheaper first attempt than buying new brakes.
