Compare the 9.5cm length with regular V brakes, the fact that they are shorter is part of the deal ,
more leverage means the end of the lever has to move further., more cable pull ,
Brifters and short arm 'L' type cantilevers have been what has worked for many years,
were even better with lower leverage cable out the top levers on the bars.
but the cable hanger for the housing is an issue, some really light forks bend, and ring with the pad squeel feedback.
cable tension goes up and lower as the fork moves. the fork crown attached housing supports shorten that ..
