I'm trying to decide whether to run canti's --- and regular aero levers,
or V-brakes and regular levers plus the 'travel agents'
or V-brakes and a V-brake compatible aero lever
(i know there's one out there --- dia compe? where can i get it? how much?)
what do you think - pros & cons of the three setups?
i'm inclined to run v-brakes, which i already own, with the trick levers, for strength of braking and b/c i fear the 'travel agent' thing won't work that great.

I ran a thread on this a while back on the old board - the conclusion was that the agents are not too good at all, and that V's are not a lot (if at all) better than good cantis, and a lot more hassle. I'm 210 on Avids, and they stop at least as well as the v's on my MTB, so I didn't bother in the end - spent the dosh on something else.
The mini v's are a total waste, by all accounts.
Hope that helps.

|Get hold of some pre-low-profile cantis like Shimano Deore from 1989 or Old Dia-Compes. Not so pretty perhaps but believe me they work a hell of a lot better.|| |
