comment Are v-brake pads compatible with cantilever brakes
Thanks Jahaziel, but that puzzles me as my sons bike which has v-brakes has pads with the post towards the front and the directional arrows on the blocks indicate they are in the correct positions. Is your response the wrong way round?

comment Are v-brake pads compatible with cantilever brakes
Thanks. Can you please explain why v-brakes have a longer rear section than front, ie why the mounting post is off-centre. Some of the cantilever suppliers I was looking at seemed to imply that the fact the mounting post was in the centre of the brake pad was an advantage.

comment Rust proof or not the outside of a steel steerer column beneath the stem
Can you please explain to me why there is no issue of slippage. I assume if I put a stem on a greased or oiled steerer column then it is easier for it to rotate. Thanks
