Brake Options for Commuter build
I'm thinking about my next commuter bike, which will probably be based on a cross frame. I see lots of commuters builds with barcons, but I have 105 STI shifters on my road bike, and I love them.
What are my brake options? I know I can use cantis, but I worry about stopping power (I'm a big guy, and I go up and down some steep hills on the way to work). I might be able to use a front disc (I already have a good rear wheel that I want to transplant, and it is set up for rim brakes)
Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.
