Don't like my brakes...
because they don't stop me quick enough. They are Shimano Cantis and rubbish. I have had too many heartstopping moments with them. I do almost all my own work on my bikes and I can't improve these. Even my LBS had a go and still not good enough. I am used to the dual pivot sidepull on my race bikes. These Cantis are on my tourers. I have replaced the set on one bike with frogglegs, an improvement but fickle to keep set up and they stick out too much. Both frames are 531 so I am considering drilling them out to take sidepulls. I have no intention to fit tyres wider than 28mm so wonder if anybody has done this or knows of any problems. My LBS can't see why not as the brake bolt will take the strain rather than the frame. Any comments?
