    What do you mean by lugless?

    V-brake compatible? OR “without lugs?”?

    Without lugs. ie. Clean, smooth.

    ie. like this but in 26″. I’ve seen some but they look a bit weedy next to a Chameleon frame.

    Most 26″ mtb unicrown forks are lugless.

    NOt all take V-brakes tho.

    Sorry my initial post wasn’t very clear. My fault. I’m looking for 26″ forks without lugs for v-brakes AND no disc mounts either.

    Bagged an old (2002?) SC Chameleon frame and intend to transfer as many components as possible over from my old Orange P7 to build a hack. Something I can have a bit of fun on and also use when riding out with the family. Seems overkill taking my new XC bike.

    I’m trying to do it cheaply so am stuck with V-brakes as rear wheel isn’t setup for disc and frame has v-brake lugs. Buying a new wheelset isn’t in the plans.

    I fancy rigid forks for this bike and I’m also not bothered about running a front brake. Race for many a season in BMX BITD without one but unfortunately can’t find one.

    Is anyone aware of a lugless 26″ rigid fork? Or should I just get disc mount rigid?

    Cheers

    Look up some fixie freestyle forks. Mostly 700c, may be long enough with enough tyre room for a 26×2″, just. Brick lane bikes, ebay etc. SE do a 700c landing gear fork.

    Buy cheap 2nd hand v brake forks, cut “lugs” off, it’s a hack afterall

    I can see not having a front brake making family outings fun for everyone as they see you hurtling downhill trying to scrub off speed with a trainer applied to your front tyre…

    Some people will go to any lengths to be different….

    Did a road ride with a fixie rider Saturday and what a pain in the wotsit… he never stopped evangelising about singlespeed and rubbishing our compacts.

    jameso and bigblackshed – Thanks very much – Charge Nozzle looks ideal especially with the removable v-brake mounts. Could always use them just to placate aphex_2k and wwaswas 😉 🙂

    Is not running a front brake deemed to be different? I don’t think I ran a front brake on any of my bikes from about 1980-1995. Only when I got my first MTB did I ride with two brakes.

    Fixies? I’m with you there though. 🙂 Compact on my road bike.

    It was probably to drown out the irritating clunking and clicking of poorly maintained drive trains.

    Ignore the genre regs. Do what you like.. but yeah, MTBs that aren’t DJ bikes with 1 brake are rare, for a reason ) old chameleon tho, awesome bike. Still got my old ~98 version, pre-discs, cracked but kept as a reminder of good times when the scared got air.
