cantilever calipers are working off pivots, on the frame below the radius of the rim.
so frame cross braces and fork blades can allow better clearance
without the brakes being functionally, compromised.
you probably can do fine on dry courses , or really thin mud..
or have a friend with a hose ,
and a second bike for when sticky Mud starts to clog up the wheel turning ,
that's when the 2 bike hand off helps keep your speed up .. at the front.
Won't have to ride a mud laden bike , slowing you down.
