I recently purchased a '90s Torelli cyclocross bike. It had Deore LX V-brakes on it when I got it, but I want to switch it over to cantilever. I bought some Forte cantilever brakes that seem to work fine in the rear, but have some clearance issues in the front. They do work with some very worn v-break pads (silver in the pic) that I had laying around, but I'm not sure that they would even work if the pads were new.
Any suggestions would be awesome. Is there a different cantilever brake that might work? Different pads?
