Forks jump when braking
I have cleaned the rotors ( both front ones ) with brake cleaner spray and new paper towels, spun the wheel off the ground and observed each rotor and not a wobble to be seen, pads are new. When I brake it feels like a warped rotor on a car feels but i can see the fork lowers slightly jumping up and down as I brake. Never have had this before so I am at a loss. Any pointers???
I was thinking maybe bearings but then why would wheel bearings make the lowers twitch and there isnt any signs of bearing wear or slop when i spin and twist on the rim???

NEVER SNEAK UP ON A SLEEPING DOG..NOT EVEN YOUR OWN.
I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.
