    ???? about TRP Euro X brakes

    Hey,

    I just completed my first dedicated cross bike, and I am running the TRP Euro X canti brakes. I am sure that my problem is not unique in that I do not have alot of stopping power. The shop that set up the brakes on my bike said that "there is little adjustment that can be done to improve power". Assuming this is true, what pads would you recommend that I switch to to improve brake performance. I am using a standard alloy Mavic rim (no carbon in my budget). Assuming that that what the shop said was less than accurate, where would I find info. and tips for fine tuning these brakes. I went to the TRP site, and to no surprise they have no manuals for any model. Any help would be great.
