    monocog 29er noodle fork?

    picked one of these up so far as a commuter, cruiser, training etc. bike and really like the geometry and overall feel etc.

    however, I added a mech. disc brake to the front and can't believe the flex I can visually SEE when I tap the brakes... I can appreciate the bit of suspension the steel provides over bumps, but really???

    I could swap to the white bros rigid fork I sometimes run on my race bike, but don't really want to.

    any input?


    btw- I'll post some pictures of the bike sometime soon-

    upgraded stem/bar/seatpost
    custom rack install (drilled) for saddlebags (large ones)
    1965? Brooks saddle
    ignitor up front and sb8 rear

    There is a lot of flex there but I found that positioning the brake caliper so that the inner pad is as close to the rotor as possible reduces it quite a bit.
