I don't know yet, I'll have to see after I get some seat time on it. I have two sets of wheels now, the Mavic Aksium (20f/20r) and a set of Interloc Racing R1700 (20f/24r). I figured I'd run both...

Anyone have a Voodoo?

I just picked up a 2009 Voodoo Limba CX bike. I found virtually no information on these bikes on the interwebs, so I'm assuming it's a pretty obscure low-volume brand. Anyone else around here riding...

The Shimano brifters are designed to work with Canti brakes, they have shorter cable travel then the V-Brakes. It works very well, the brakes are strong and tight feeling, not sloppy at all.

Glad I'm not the only one, it's unbelievable how poor the grip is in the wet with those tires. I end up riding like a 3-year old on a tricycle when I see wet pavement ahead, I already crashed once...
