Old school XT cantis vs v-brakes for cross
I am thinking about switching to some 1995 old school Shimano BR-M737, Deore XT cantilevers and ditching my Tektro v-brakes (with Problem Solver Travel Agents) for my new cross build. When the V-brakes get wet, they are fairly useless - I can ride the bakes fully depressed and not completely stop - just slow down a bit.
Will these cantis provide better wet condition stopping power with Campy STI levers? Also, what brake pads do you recommend (or with the stock black Shimano XT MTB pads be fine) for use on aluminum rims?
the pure Salmon are almost too grabby
cyclocross magazine did a brake pad review last year, it has pretty good info

LOVE YEHSTARs, they wear fast but are great pads. Where did you find? I hoard them
