It is easy to adjust the pads, however it does take a little more time to get them centered. If they fell mushy or underpowered, you pro'ly have them adjusted wrong. No brake rim brake has better feedback either.
hard to dial in so be patient and methodical.
PROS: No noodle
CONS: Hard to adjust

Installed these to replace some 12 year old Avid 2 brakes, I should have just replaced the pads on the old Avids.
The Cane Creeks were light, I loved the idea of getting rid of the 90 degree noodle on typical V brakes but Cane Creek just couldn't deliver enough benefit to make it worth the set-up.
The craftsmanship is pretty poor. The right rear brake pivot rubs against the brake arm when trying to use the hole for the greatest spring tension on the frame causing the brake to bind.
You have to have the cable housing length absolutely perfect to get these to work anywhere close to alright. This makes the rear brake cable loop so far out from the frame, your leg brushes up against the cable housing while pedaling. Make it shorter and the brake binds.
Seriously, click away from this product and go but some Avids or something. Seriously not impressed and the last time I'll purchase a Cane Creek product period.
CONS: Hard To Dial In, Mediocre Craftsmanship
