I have an old 2000 Cannondale XR800 (CAAD3?) that I want to upgrade with a non-suspension, disk-brake compatible front fork. Something like this.
But what fork to buy? Anything I should know about standards, measurements etc?
I believe I may be capable of putting everything (fork, wheel, disk, caliper) together. But I know nothing about fork/stem standards and compatibility and such.
The bike currently has the original Rock Shock fork with suspension in/at the steering stem. It's been great, but I really really want disk brakes and the suspension doesn't really give me much (I think :) plus it needs maintenance all the time.
I am considering buying a new bike altogether, but I like this old bike. And I have a feeling this old frame can keep up with modern ones. Feel free to correct me on this.
