Ever had fork chatter when braking? Figured out a way to fix it? I've found toe-in and pad material can usually fix it most of the time. But if you're still struggling with it, why not just return the damn fork (or bike)?

Since it won't be up there forever, here's the funny part: "All components are stock, but the original fork was warrantied by Trek because of a slight shudder, replaced with the same fork model."

You'd think Trek would just laugh.

Well, anyway, if you have super-secret techniques on eliminating chatter, or want to recommend a fork to get or avoid because of chatter, post it here.

I've found the Ritchey WCS and Easton EC90x both tend to have some, but it's mostly curable. I usually use the really grabby salmon pads though - and other pads have been more forgiving with chatter.

I just posted in another thread about the same thing so:

Answer is:
Tektro 1272AF front cable hanger (if you have a hole in your fork to mount it to).
