Could also be something on your rim...or mis-aligned brake pads.

Went home and yanked everything apart only to find the bonding on my steerer tube where it's bonded to the crown had cracked and the steerer was working it's way loose. It's pressed down onto the crown so when it cracked it didn't fall apart but a ride or two more and the steerer would've seperated. Not something I want to think about!

carbon fork (with aluminum steer tube)
shimano canti's (new ones)
mavic kyserium elite wheels (and Open pros)
here's what I did:
loosened off the brake pads, one at a time, put a nickel behind the rear of the pad (theoretically the last contact point, if you "toe the pad in").
so on the front pads, put the nickel at the rear of the pad, loosen off, adjust pad to correct position, apply brake, and tighten pad.
on the rear, place nickel at rear of pad, repeat as same as above for adjustment.
this fixed my fork chatter perfectly. (mine was horrible...did the Kingston Cx race last Saturday (maiden voyage of my new bike), man did they shudder...so its fixed now).
