    9 sp. Centaur & V's /

    I've a vintage '91 Fuji steel HT I want to re-purpose as a gravel/dirt road bike, swapping to a drop bar.

    I've a set of 9 spd. Centaur shifters (and rear derailer) I know will shift a triple as well as a Shimano cassette.

    Question is re-install the Travel Agents and use the Avid V brakes ? or use a set of XT Canti's I have.

    Any thoughts on which brake system would work best with these shifters.

    Thx in advance

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    I'd go cantis but the V brakes will work if you use something like that to change the travel.

    Thanks, I try the Cantiís. The Fuji frame has a nice steel noodle built in to the rear post cluster to route the canti cable. Itís a nice touch made useless if using Vís as I am now.
