This is the first Cross bike I've built so forgive the ignorance.
Anyway, the plan was to use Shorty 6's front and rear. They went on just fine, but what I noticed is that any type of canti that uses V-type pads, which is basically all of the modern ones, will not allow the pads to retract far enough to easily remove the front wheel.
So the scenario is, the V pad gets hung up on the fork, not allowing the arms to go back far enough.
I had a set of old school LX MTB brakes running around and slapped those on, which work great and allow the front wheel to come off like it should.
So the question is: What is everyone doing for front brakes?
I see there is some boutique kind of brakes out there that use traditional canti pads.
Any other way to solve this issue?
