I have a 2012 Specialized Crux Elite. I love it, but one thing is annoying me. The bike, on both the front and rear, has Tektro CR-720 canti brakes. These, from the two weeks I've used them, seem like good brakes. Good stopping power, well-made, etc. I have one qualm. I find that, when dismounting the Crux, the rear cantilever jabs into me. I know that this is normal, but it is very annoying and distracting. What would you recommend I get, in the low-profile genre of cantilever brakes, for around 20-30 dollars each? Is there a low-profile version of the CR-720? I would also like it if the brakes took v-brake pads or caliper pads. I have had trouble with traditional cantilever post pads in the past.
