I came across a pile of bolt on canti/v-brake mounts, presumably for rigid carbon forks.

Can anyone with a White Brothers rock solid fork tell me the diameter of the carbon legs? Just trying to figure out what they might fit.

Could also be one of the other brands that sold the same fork, pretty sure I've seen them under a few different names. Thanks all.

Mine are 34mm.


Ive not seen rock solid as anything other than disc. So would query the thought of putting them in the middle of the legs. Might be a bad idea if theyre not meant to have splaying and other forces at work mid leg.

I certainly could be recalling the wrong brand of fork. At least one of them had accessory brake mounts available.

The brake mounts I have seem to measure more like 36mm, or possibly 38mm without the friction tape they have lining the inside of the clamp.
