V-brakes and Cantis use the same mount. U-brake is different. Road is different again. Any canti or V will fit the Bianchi. Cants FTW!

People think it's all about misery and desperation and death and all that **** which is not to be ignored, but what they forget is the pleasure of it. Otherwise we wouldn't do it. After all, we're not ****ing stupid. Renton-Trainspotting
