    Advice please - Ritchey BreakAway cross fork upgrade?

    Have any of you BreakAway owners (or mechanics who have worked on them) successfully upgraded a cyclocross Ritchey carbon canti-brake fork to a disc fork? It is for the Ti cross frame, not steel.

    At issue is that I've never been able to fully resolve fork chatter on hard braking.

    I've tried canti brakes and v-brakes, toeing in the brake shoes, but the symptom never fully goes away, thus my interest in a new fork, without majorly affecting geometry (head tube angle interaction with fork rake/ trail). I'm not wed to a particular fork material.

    Comparing the SwissCross geometry chart to that of the steel BA cross, for a 56cm frame, I see a 10mm axle-to-crown delta (400 vs 390) and a 3mm reach delta (391 vs 394).

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Do you like the fork? What hub or pre-build wheel did you choose?

    I haven't ridden it as I went the local market and got some generic fork. Have never had chatter problems, maybe I don't go fast enough. Mate got one and raves about I think he just used the wheels he had lying around WTB somethings.
