    I am upgrading from cantilever to V-brakes. How do I mount my new Avid V-brakes on my old frame? Clamps? Where? Thank you!

    V brakes use the same bosses that your canti's do

    just take off the old brakes and whack on the new ones

    Yeah I know about bosses but what about cable guides? It looks like I'm going to need clamps of some sort. My braze ons are on the top tube (TREK frame). The main problem is for the rear brake cause I need to make sure it clamps right.

    Thanks bro,

    Run the cable along the top tube as you would with your cantis.

    You should be fine. It will be patently obvious when you get the parts.
