I'm running RSX STI's with Deore V-Brakes, they work fine. Got to set them quite close to the rim, and they are a little spongy, but loads of power.


Works best with the older wide profile cantis than the later low pro ones. You don't get the problems of running close to the rim and everything happening in the last 5mm of lever travel.

If anyone is looking for some old Shimano wide profile cantis I can offer some for free.

Excellent work. Looks great with the skinwalls, just like in the catalogue.
