Stopped XT Squeal!!!
I bought a Koga Globetraveller that came with XT V brakes with the parallelogram shoe mounts. They squealed so much I stopped riding the bike. I tried different types of grease. Different types of shoes. Nothing worked. Lately, Shimano designers seem to have confused complexity with sophistication. I'm very impressed with everything I have bought from Sram/Avid. These brakes, some Attack 9 speed grip shifts and chains that I can repeatedly remove and clean without buying riveted master links.
Sram/Avid seems to understand the importance of simplicity, serviceability and realized, rather than rationalized, performance improvements.

The only choice for rim brakes
These are the best V-brake on the market in my opinion. The supplied pads work well in the Northern Arizona desert where it is dry and dusty. No squealing, plenty of stopping power, and great modulation. What more do you need from a set of brakes?

Better than my old XT and XTR V-Brakes
Bought these as an upgrade to a touring bike. Really happy with them, was tempted to swap them with the XTR V-Brakes on my hard tail mountain bike. I ran these with full fenders and they had enough clearance. I'm decent at setting up brakes, but I think set-up is easier than a typical V-Brake.

PROS: Easy to set-up, Good price, Stopping power

BEST USES: Touring bike, Older Mountain Bike

Good v-brakes
I've used these on my single speed and they are great brakes. They stop great and were extremely easy to set up. The spring is strong and makes them have a good solid feel. They do tend to lose a little bit of power in mud and when wet but not much (and is expected as they are rim brakes), but it's not really noticeable. I'd definitely buy them again if I was building up another v-brake bike.

Bought a cheap...
Bought a cheap tandem to help rehab my wife's knee after surgery. Original brakes scary going downhill. Put these guys on, went for a solo test ride, almost endo'd.

Still the best mechanical brakes on the market
I'm not as happy with Avid products since they became a member of the SRAM family but, they're still top quality. The instructions have been hard to find/figure out since the SRAM take-over but, the design makes it pretty easy to figure out installation. When it comes to rim brakes or mechanical discs - AVID is the best choice for the money.

Overall I'm...
Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchase, the difference between these and my factory brakes is night and day. I'm a bigger guy @215lbs and I no longer get "edgy" when going downhill, these have enough power to stop me with no problems at all. Silky smooth engagement, no noise whatsoever, and extremely affordable price-point make these v-brakes an extremely good deal.

I have an older Giant Iguana with cantilever brakes that I want to upgrade. I have a mounting hole on the top fonmy fork and best I can measure is 3.5" from center of hole to center of rim. Will these or any v-brake system fit? How do they mount? Can't really tell by the pic. Thanks

BEST ANSWER: They mount on the same brake boss that your canti's use, so yes they would fit. Just make sure you still have enough tire clearance, as canti's typically allow for a wider tire.
