I'm probably gonna use my Specialized Crux Elite as a road bike in the spring, put on slicks and do some races. I have some 105 and Ultegra bits I'm gonna be upgrading to anyway once cross season ends, so I was looking for ways to increase my stopping power for road riding. I was thinking of getting TRP CX 9 mini v-brakes. They look nice, but I was wondering how they actually are, if anyone's used them or something similar for cyclocross. My only real concern is mud clearance, because of the crazy mud we've had recently on the east coast. Are there any other issues I should worry about?
