thats how my dirt jumper was set up - but it has discs on the bottom of the forks (until i took it off)

however on many bikes (like my bowery fixed) the brake itself hits the frame stopping a barspin from happeneing.

throw up some pix as id like to see your clearance on the brake to the frame - good job dude on lacin the cable thru the stem and steertube.

you can make your bike so that it has a Suicide Brake Lever. good places to put the brakes are on the top tube where your bars cant touch them ,or, on the seat post(AKA The suicide Brake)

One of these days i'll build a fixed with a front disc and run the cable down the steerer. I'm kinda surprised I havent seen more people doing that.

while your idea is a good one, its just not "cool" to run brakes on fixed gears! haha.

i love the idea of a front disc, but that sounds like an expensive hub!!

You're right about it not being "cool" to run brakes. I do it anyway on my rain/beater bike. A lot of kids around here end up running MTB forks on their "tarck" setups anyway. It wouldnt be any harder to get one with a disc mount and lace up just about any front disc hub to a deep V/chukker/B43/ect/ Hollow starnut. Mechanical avid disc brakes are pretty cheap now days. If you wanted to be different that would be a good way to do it.
