standard cross interrupter levers are not made to work with v brakes. v brakes pull about twice as much cable as standard cantilevers and calipers. did a shop set this up for you? if so, demand your money back (on the cross levers, not the bike).
the drop levers on the stock singlecross are designed to work with v brakes, and probably ONLY v brakes. which means switching to cantis isnt going to solve your problem either, as your drop levers wont function properly.
some brake levers can be adjusted to work with both v brakes and standard cantis, but the only ones i've ever seen are for straight handlebars. i've also never seen interrupter levers for v brakes, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
finally, you COULD switch the drop levers to standard road levers, keep the interruptors and use a travel agent adapter.
this is the cheapest way i can think of to allow you to keep the interruptors.
basically you need to:
a)get rid of the inerrupter levers (i've had them and i never used them, so that's what i'd do)
b)get new drop levers and canti brakes
c)get new drop levers and a travel agent.
