I'm upgrading my Tricross with a set of TRP CX8.4's. It previously had Avid Shorty 6 on it.
I'm having trouble getting the distance between the top of the brake arms to match what the instructions says. It calls for no more than 45 mm, but I'm getting around 60 mm. I already have the narrow spacers on the pad side.

Do all CX bikes have the same spacing between the brake bosses?
Just to experiment a bit I tried to use the brake shoes from the Avids, and then the spacing looks much better:

Am I doing something wrong?
