I seem to recall that these will not pull enough cable for Vee's. Is that so? If they will I could be tempted...
They actually pull too much cable. Cantis are drawn into the rim from an angle (as opposed to straight on with a v-brake) so require more cable pull for the pad to travel the same distance.
Using canti levers with v-brakes provides a rock solid, dead feeling with about 1/2 the lever travel.
