I need the voice of experience. I am new to touring, but have big plans. I am just finishing a new touring bike, and chose V-brakes. I wrote once about me initial experience with them, which was scary. I since installed new brake pads, and today was relieved to find that they do stop the bike. I think that they are actually pretty good. But I am still bothered by the lack of discussion that I have noted here about V-brakes. I saw them on several touring bikes in France last fall, which did influence my decision.
So here is the question: Are V-brakes a good choice for loaded touring?
Thanks for your help,
