    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.
