Can a Cannondale Pepperoni fork (threadless era, 1.125") use XTR V-Brakes on the brake bosses?

thanks!!!!!
I don't see why not. The mounts for cantis and v-brakes are the same.

Unless the bike came with u-brakes or roller-cams (which I doubt) there shoudl be no problems.

Thanks, that's what I thought too.....but Cannondale did use a wack 'power cam' thing before linear-pull came out....don't see how that would affect the bosses, though....I am about to buy a fork sight-unseen and the seller has planted the seed of incompatibility in my mind.

Cheers!

V's will work no problem

You can just unscrew that Force 40 cam crap and kick it in the river.

I feel I should warn you though that that fork is really only suited to road use. It will beat you to death in the mountains... I have happily thrown away two of them in my life.
