Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Mini-v brakes and cross top levers - crossing my fingers

After building my first cross bike I'm frustrated with the braking, squealing and fork shudder. Too fiddly on the canti brakes for me.

I just got mini-v brakes and cross top levers and I hope this brings some sanity back to the bike. I read all I could so I pulled the trigger.

I'll be doing mainly commute and several cross races (noob) so I think the closer fit of the v will be fine. Heck, the bike is lighter than my roadie so this may take its place on the weekend hammerfest if it brakes solid!
