Bought an older Rockhopper to convert to a commuter/town bike but the canti brakes sucked. Thought about upgrading to a new set of Vs but thought I'd try the Kool Stop Eagle claw II (salmon) first (14 bucks for a full set). Awesome. I almost did an indo on my first test ride. They are quieter too.
I recommend these pads to anyone with canti brakes that seem a little weak.
Nope, not affiliated...just pleased.
