I know, I'm going way out on a limb here.  I'm heading from Vancouver BC to Monterray to race Sea Otter April 18 - 22.  I'm registered in 3 road races but would really like to race cycclocross as well.  Problem is, I can't manage to get my cross bike there with airline fees and some logistical issues.Is there anyone going to Sea Otter that would like to rent me their Cross bike (approx a 54") for the race?  The race is on Sat April 21st at 4:10pm (Masters CAT4).  My legs will be toast after the…See More

"Thanks everyone for the replys!   so, I picked the low laying fruit first.  Tightened the headset and toe'd in the brakes.  Took it out for a spin and it was night and day!  There was almost no chatter at all. I'll see…"

"A few things  1) don't use your brakes. I'm not joking- seriously try to NOT use them.  2) Increase the pre-load on you headset- really tighten in down. That has worked for me every time. (ec90x, ex70x and a specilized carbon…"

"Crazy toe-in, harder pad compound (I like kool stop dual compound better than salmon pads in front for this reason), shorter pads- road pads or cut the long thinline pads down by 1/3.  Some combination of these will work."

"Sadly, my fork was experiencing the most chatter when Seattle's weather is at its best (cold and rainy).   When dry everything was fine, but when things turned wet and goopy the fork would chatter so badly that…"

"I wold suggest installing a V brake on the front.  I was experiencing some chatter and installing a V brake up front seems to have solved the problem.  The stopping power is a lot better too, which seems to help a bit with race fatigue…"

"I used to have an Easton CX90 fork, and had bad chatter to start. In addition to toe-in, one thing that worked for me was to raise the cable straddle hanger a little higher.  I did this because I read it was done for a pro team's set up…"

"Really toe-in the pads: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_d43NBqLmQ I tape a quarter to the rim, set it right under the edge of the pad, give the brakes a little squeeze, tighten and voila - instant toe-in.     If you're…"
