I would like to get a straight (instead of curved) fork with a disk brake, preferably alloy. What are some nice, relatively cheap options? Would a modern fork fit an older bike? Would the geometry make sense?
if you are handy and have time it is a fun project
If u don't need newest bestist lightest but usable bike do it did and love my 1990's rockadille drop bar graveler.....
