I have switched two different bikes from cantis to V-brakes. It's not a hard job. Cable stops were not an issue. Cantilever brakes need a cable stop right above them, V's don't. The cable can be run in the stock location. You'll need new levers, cable+housings, and the brakes themselves. Try some Kool Stop pads on your existing brakes- big improvement. Properly set up, brakes don't need much adjusting.
