The barrel end of the crossover cable should be detachable from that end of the caliper.
the side opposite of the fixing bolt one that clamps the bare wire.
because wide profile cantilevers let you run a bigger pad to rim gap
than the low profile type, there is more room/slack when you squeeze your pads together with your hand, to pull the end of the cable out..
using V brake shoes with the long tail extending inside the fork blade, on narrow forks,
may create a problem.
solution is to use a shorter brake shoe.
Shopping.. TRP EuroX and Avid Ultimate offer a barrel adjuster
that the ball end of the cross over cable fits thru, and so there is that convenient adjustment available..
[Magura Hydraulic rim brakes have a QR bolt
to remove the entire caliper/slave cylinder
on one side, for puncture repairs.]
