    Need more braking power, V-Brakes?

    Hi all,

    I own a lovely Cannondale RT-1000. I was wondering:

    A) Can I swap the cantilever brakes for V-brakes?

    I have often felt like my girlfriend and I are lacking brake...

    Ha! I hadn't used heliocoils in so long that I had forgotten about them! I'll give that a go, I hadn't really fooled with it at all yet.
