    these are powerful brakes....do you think a bridgestone xo-1 has stout enough frame tubes for running these cantis? if not, any suggestions?

    Nope, X0-1's have historically weak canti's. Please send it to me for immediate disposal.

    Seriously, that will be a great brake for that bike. You should use the touring version on the rear for heal clearance.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC
