I considered moving the peg lower on the forks, but I didn't like the idea of mucking up the chrome. Also, I had extra brake hubs, but not extra sets of hobbit forks, and I am prone to mucking things up the first time around (and the second, even third occasionally).

In addition, I am a little sketched out about welding to the forks, as this anneals and softens the steel. I know that this also happens when I weld the hub, like I did, but I feel that it compromises my safety less to have a failed brake than a failed fork. I suppose the real answer is, it probably doesn't matter either way.
