    I hate my cantilever brakes on my Surly Cross Check and want to get some mini v brakes. I've looked at a lot of reviews online. What say you all?

    I guess it depends why you hate the current cantis. I have Tektro CR720s on my cross bike with red Kool Stop pads and they've been great.

    IMO, all of the stock pads are junk, even the "good" ones. I've had XTR pads tear up rims.

    My cantis have the longer v-brake shoes, so I use these in red (all conditions): http://www.koolstop.com/english/v_type.html. A description of the different compound types can be found at http://www.koolstop.com/english/compounds.html. DH has used the black (dry conditions) pads on his cross bike with equally good results, and he's quite a bit bigger than me.
