They'll use the same bosses. That said, do you have provisions to deal with the fact that the cable pull needs to come from the center? Since most V-Brakes come in from the side and use a noodle to cross over that may be something you'll have to adapt.

"Problem Solvers" makes the one for the front, replaces a headtube spacer. For the rear you'll probably have to use one that comes off the seat post if your frame has no provisions.
