    Lady GriddleCakes here:

    For some reason I thought that V-brakes wouldn't fit on canti posts, like the distance to the rim was markedly different. I've got an extra V-brake and lever floating around, so I'll try that.

    AnkleWork I've tried messing with the cantilever, changing the straddle cable length, to see if I could increase its stopping power, but it didn't do much. It works well enough when the bike's...

    Drum brake questions

    I've got an old MTB Xtracycle cargo bike conversion with cantis in the front and a disc brake on the Xtracycle extension. The disc works great and is sufficient to stop the bike when loaded, which is...

    I don't know about "most hideous", but it is pretty ugly. Here's a less hideous version of the same concept, albeit more expensive.
