Caliper brake on a Burley Cro-Mo fork?
This question actually arises from another thread, but just to get it out there: Can a regular road caliper brake be used on a stock Burley Cro-Mo fork? The bike (our 2005 Tosa) came with V-brakes, but it finally dawned on me that there's a hole drilled at the crown. It sure looks like it could handle a caliper brake. Is there some catch I'm missing? Is there too much clearance in the fork for the caliper to reach the rim?
As always, thanks for the info!
