I am looking for some input from you folks here. I have a Cross Check I use for ultralight touring, and in need of some new brakes. I chose to post here as my use if fast, very light, short trips. I thought more in line with Rando, then convential touring, and looking for suggestions that reflect that.
I built up the bike with Cane Creek cantilevers, Sram Apex shift / brake levers, and I must say the brakes don't seem that great. The anodizing has all faded, and they never stopped that good. I do realize if I got new pads, they would probably be better. What has worked good in your experience? The Paul Components caught my eye, but $! Any input here? Thanks!
