    Hopefully they should get warrentied, has anyone else out there had this problem, and if so can anyone recomend a set of forks with a better designed disk mount, i have been looking at the cannondale fatty r's as replacements, what do u guys recon?

    Thanks. Adam

    i would say youre lucky it cracked there and you caught it as opposed to it cracking the leg at the top of the mount all the way through like what has happened to me about 4 times with forks. one of the best disk mount dropouts i have seen and tried is the brisa (its unfortunately attached to the rest of that fork though). there is the kniffen light (but everyone here will say its ugly and shouldnt be used). i would honestly look into another urban. u would think they will replace that since it happened in a weird way in uder 6 months. ive never seen a tab pull off form the bottom like that before.
