I built my wife's bike with mini-v and Tiagra brifters. It stops scary good. You have to readjust your finger pull because they grip better than the cantis.
If you have a need for clearance then travel agents are needed but her bike is a road bike for now so the road brake type of clearance is just fine. It's good to have a little barrel adjuster in the noodle too for changing the clearance.
