    added V-brake bosses to the rear of my build---it has a sturmey/archer drum on front.Of all brakes I seem to like V-brakes best for rim brakes.I think the added leverage of the long arms gives you an added advantage.

    Yea V brakes are sorta idiot proof too, I have them on front and rear and the stopping power is simply amazing. I remember back in the day trying to adjust those cantilever type brakes and I would always fray the cable and it was a pain getting them just right.
