    Trying to keep the dream alive.........help needed

    Dear Cdale Lovers,

    I have 2 vintage cdale which i am trying to keep. However the headshok has the same problem which i am wondering what could be wrong. Whenever i press the front brakes, there seems to be an intermittent jerking or vibration.

    I do love to ride them but eversince i notice this problem, i tried to use them a lil as possible. Sometimes i only use the rear brakes but that defeats the purpose of having a front brakes.

    Can someone advice on what could be the problem as i might be sending both my beauties to a cdale authorise service / shop but i just do not want them to pull a fast one on the problem. Cdale repairs can be exorbitant.

    Please advise...

    Brakes

    Avid brakes by any chance? Wavy rotor design?

    Check for any play/looseness in the headsets, also in the Headshok (might need to be reset) and even the v-brakes themselves (make sure they don't have slack, pads adjusted correctly)...
