Please excuse the crosspost between here and the cylcocross forum but, I am just getting ready to collect parts for a cyclocross/Katy Trail Tourer bike build ( A project is born I have a couple of questions.
1. Will any cantilver break work well with road levers?
2. Am I better off with a road triple or a mountainbike triple. (I am a clyde and all my rides have triples)
3. Should I go with barconns or brifters
Other than that I plan on using Lx/Xt level front and long cage rear derailurs. I will also probably also go 8 speed since I have a fairly good extra 700c wheelset with a good 12-25 cassette on it.
