Cantilever breaks are pain (literally) to release!!
I've got Shimano cantilever breaks on my cross bike, and man are they a pain in the arse to release whenever I need to pull off my wheel. I can never get it the break to release nice and quick, and it usually requires enough force (releasing and re-engaging) that the tips of my thumbs are left numb for like a day afterwards.
Anyone else have this problem? Am I doing something wrong? Any tips to make this a little more smooth?
