what type of brakes do you think will work with it? As far as I know the thing is brand new.



Basically this is a replacement for an old Trek single speed project I'm building, and I need to know what brakes to order.

Thanks!

Well...looks like any cantilever or V-brake set up would work just fine. I'm assuming that we're looking at a 26" mtn. bike fork, ya? If your going to use cantilevers, make sure you have a cable stop.

Yes, it's a 26" MTB fork. It will just be used on the front, so where would the cable stop go?

I've seen a few variartions on cable stops. Some bolt on above the HS on the fork tube. On an old specialized I have the F brake cable runs into the stem which incorporates a cable stop. Some place like Loose screws might have the bolt on ones?

You sure you don't want some kind of suspension? Those should fit V brakes I'm sure.
