comment Cantilever brakes for older narrow fork bosses (55mm)?
Ah - I see that thread has been updated since I last checked and it appears they have worked out OK for that guy. I will look into it - thanks

I emailed PlanetX and they said their cantilevers were designed for use with modern spaced forks - of course this is probably just their safest reply.

They are Kool Stop v-type I think, might look into these thin lines, so thanks for the suggestion

Thanks, that thread certainly covers the same issue, but I can't see any modern replacements recommended... I have been looking at the Dia Comp GC-999, Dia Compe CRX, and TRP EuroX and emailed the manufacturers maybe they'll get back to me regarding spacing. All these use the old post style as opposed to the modern threaded v-brake pads, maybe there is more room to maneuver with that design if the geometry otherwise fits.
