I guess I'm slightly confused on this one. you're saying that the canti mounts are closer together on the fork and cause the brakes to touch the rims without pads on it?

Splatter paint is the best.
I love when it's thinner paint lines too.

Well, the goal here for me is to swap all the components from my Sport DLX to a touring frame and possibly just buy new canti brakes.
