Brakes, Brakes, Brakes!!!HENRY K

I have tried everything except the Pauls...Had XTs, Avid Shorty 6s, XT V-Brakes with a Travel Agent and not happy with any of those set ups! I did just discover that my 2001 Litespeed has a rear disc mount though. All I need now (besides the disc set-up, new hubs, wheel re-builds etc.) is a disc specific front fork. Any fork recomendations? Is the Avid road disc set up the only equipment out there that would work. Does anyone have any experience with the Avid road discs?

Look for Dimension forks, QBP sells them to dealers.

Avids are the only ones for drops bars now, but almost a year ago I saw a Morati CX bike/proto with Hope Mini's. Under the stem there was a Hope cable->hydrau converter, really neat! The STI levers felt just like Mini levers. Hope has not put it in production, were too busy making brakes, is what I got from my distributor.
