Youíll never find anything current at less than 80mm and even that is getting tough.

If you can get one, you will need to set up the front with a disc brake, but you can re-lace your front rim to a disc hub, (maybe you can use a road/gravel hub but Iím not sure) if you want and run a road mechanical disc in the front. I think you can use your cantilever levers with the road disc caliper in front at cantiís in the back.

My weapon of choice has been old Bomber forks, and I need to find out what seals are still available. Bombers arenít the lightest but they seem to hold up. I wouldnít do any serious drops or jumps with them. They are getting tougher to find.

The Judy TT was either 80 or 100mm if I remember correctly.

I had one and it was 80mm.
