I have a older steel Ciocc Xcross frame and the canti brake studs seem to close together to get canti brakes to fit right. I tried using Avid 8's, LX cantis even tektro mini-V brakes and they seem to close together to get the proper brake setup. If anyone could suggest the correct brakes to use with this frame, I would really appreciate it.

find a set of vintage Mafacs or any of the newer models based on this design (Empella Froggleggs, Spookys, Paul Neo-Retros). Personally find the old Mafacs and go pure retrogrouch. They show up on ebay and various other places.
