    80mm fork w/V-mounts for 24" street?

    I'm going to be building a 24" bike pretty soon, and would like V's on the front...I really like the Gold Label I have on my Bruiser, but they are only disc-specific. So I need some other options - I want something 80mm (or less) with V-mounts that is burly, and the lighter the better.

    05 D-streets have 80mm travel 24" V-brake bosses, burley as hell and will last for a long time, but a little on the heavy side.

    What'd be cool is to be able to bolt on or weld on V bosses on any fork.

    Yup, DJ Street. Heavy as hell and feels like crap, though.

    Why not just run only a rear brake? You can still do a lot of F wheel tricks with footjams, and you don't have to worry about which fork you use.

    Another option is rigid, but I'm not sure if that's up your alley or not.

    Thanks for the feedback fellas, but I don't understand this line of thinking - I have front/back brakes on my 26" bike, and this is how I've gotten used to riding. I'm working on, and would like to incorporate trials into my riding as well, which somewhat requires a front brake. Why would I footjam when I could simply use a brake? I don't get it...

    I had front brakes on my street machine, front brakes seemed useful for nosepicks, toothpicks, and hopping around on the front wheel waiting for traffic to move, but I think footjams look cool.
