    Want v-brake mounts for 29 wheel on 26 fork

    I have looked all over this section and entire forum and can't find any answer to my question.
    I have a 26" rigid steel SS and want to run a 29" wheel on the front. My current steel fork is capable of 29" wheel and the geometry on the bike will work, it also has disc tabs but I want to keep my v-brakes.
    Are there any adapters out there that wiill 'raise' up the brake mounts? I kinda want to stay away from buying a new fork.

    Hey, that's really cool. The price isn't bad either, thanks.

    Or else Mavic makes such an daptator
    And Paul makes adjustable V's that would work too.

    The older WB forks had v-mounts, hard to find but I recently located one

    Thanks, wedge. I'm definitely going to have to buy one of those. My current XC bike is retardedly light, so I'm going to build a beefier AM bike. I figured I'd save the XC bike for road and rail-trail rides once I get the new bike built. 700c wheels would just make it that much better.
