Hey guys, I have a Trek X0-1 Cross bike that I love. I only use this for commuting, but I was wondering, how common is it to use V-Brakes on a cyclocross bike. I've seen V-brakes that are supposed to work with road levers, and also adapters for "normal" V-brakes that would only work with MTB levers. Is there really any advantage to V's over a set of well-adjusted cantis?

Most of the difference can be noticed in high speeds mainly due to the length of the arms and the efficency of the cable pull. Also it has a greater modulation and a much softer feel.
