"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,…"

"Hey Bob,   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…"

"hey Bob 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 don't think you're missing anything.  For this reason I was never a fan of the old Mafac style cantilevers-not enough adjustment for pad contact, requiring fairly narrow parameters for canti stud placement.  Now one could…"

2010 Specialized Crux and EuroX brake fit???

I have a brand new Specialized Crux and I bought some TRP EuroX brakes for it.   Problem:  the rear brakes don't line up.  it seems that the bosses are mounted too low and since the TRP brakes only have a rotating adjustment in that direction (instead of the slot of old v-brakes or other cantis) i find no way to get the brake pads to hit the rim flat.   What the heck am i missing?  or could my frame be built 'off'??thanks!bobSee More
