I've got a Focus light touring bike that i use for commuting. It has Shimano 105 levers and Tektro mini-V brakes. However, the front brake squealed horribly and eventually i gave up adjusting it and bought a long drop (although i had to file out a couple of mm to drop it lower) road calliper.
I was recently involved in a crash that has bent the remaining, rear mini-V, which i am hoping to replace with something similar to the front, only the drop is something like 65mm. What should i do? I know there are a couple of extra long drop callipers out there but should i also be looking at a U brake and/or cantis?
Any help would be most gratefully received
