If i have to put the old stock forks back on, what kind of brakes should i buy, theres a hole where the fender is mounted to mount brakes.
Ah no thats not normal at all, have a relativly cheap bike maybe 300 bucks new with a disc and suspension forks and i can see maybe 5mm of flex when i rock back and forth and most of thats the hub twisting.
