Hi. Do any of you know of any inexpensive disc-mount forks? Like under $100? Thanks. Colin

Put up the cash, and Independent Fabrication or Steelman would build you anything. I think the IF would run $350, probably about the same for a Steelman.

I would get a Tange steel fork for $40, and find a shop that could braze some disk mounts onto it. My shop will put cantilever stops on a road frame/fork for $50. I bet you could find someone to do this for $25 or so. Then its just a question of the cost of a disc mount, dont ask me.

I think you could pull it off for $150 no problem, but it all depends on the cost of the mount and labor prices.
