    i hava a n\mountain bike and i started commuting to work with it doing 20km a day with it when i am going downhill and i press on the brakes my fork which has no suspension starts vibrating moving forward and backward but when i leave the front brake the vibration will stop, thus conclucing that the problem is when i press the front brake.

    do any oone know what is the cause?

    cheers

    Sounds like something is loose, check everything is done up tight.
