I'm putting a new bike together. I'm considering a cantilever brake on the front (for stopping power) and a dual caliper on the rear due to the rather odd nature of my luggage (a guitar on one side, crash bag and tent on the other and a small rucksack on the top of the rack). The arms of a cantilever stick out too much...
I have mostly had bikes with calipers and like the sensitivity and control of the back wheel with them (no problem locking the wheel in an emergency stop fully loaded).
Would this be a foolish combination in your esteemed opinions?
