    Can I switch from cantilever to V-brakes?

    First of all, is there any benefit to switching? My current Dia Compe cantilever brakes don't seem to stop me all that well, and I've had 2 crashes, because I couldn't stop fast enough (and because I'm still learning).

    And if you think it would help my stopping power to switch, willthe mounts on the frame work with V-brakes?

    thanks, Doug

    Yes, make the switch. New brakes, levers, cables and housings. The brake bosses are the same.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
