"I think Bob's issue is pad angle at the rim, not clearance. The straddle cable adjustment will impact clearance and power but can't alter the angle of the pads. I assume Bob has the pads slammed all the way in against the…"
"Bob - one of the issues is that the Crux's Roval wheels (if that's what came stock) have pretty wide rims. This makes rim pad flush fit a challenge - the same with notubes.com 29er rims, hed ardennes, zipp 303,…"
I have also have the TRP Eurox X brakes on my Surly Cross Check. They work well, though not perfect. My issue is not vertical height adjustment, but rather toe-in. You probably know this obvious feature of the brake, but I'll…"
are you brake arms flat or pointing down? i'm running spookys on my tricross and they work really well. you may need to take some cable out of our stradle cable? so the arms are flatter. this will put the pads closer to the rim,…"

I have a brand new Specialized Crux and I bought some TRP EuroX brakes for it.
