Stopping Power?
01 Nov 2016
I want to convert from cantilever brakes and was thinking of swapping to V-brake drop levers with XT or LX v-brakes. However it looks like I could use these v-brakes with the current standard road drop bar levers. How do you think stopping power would compare, and how light or heavy the effort on fingers would be in comparison?

You only seem to stock 'rear' - I assume that the only difference is the shape of the noodle, so a pair of 'rear' should be fine if I also got a spare front noodle?
SJS Customer Service:

These R463 may not be quite as powerful as a set of XT brakes, but they will be noticeably more powerful than your current set of cantilever brakes. Actual feel at the lever is hard to compare because other factors like cable resistance play a huge part. As well as the noodle, the brake block orientation will also be incorrect.

Compatibility With Older Shimano Tiagra Brake Levers
08 Dec 2014

I've read a number of reviews online saying that these brakes are compatible with older Shimano STI shifters. I am looking to upgrade the brakes on my old Specialized Tricross ( and was wondering if these would be compatible? They look very similar to the TRP 8.4 / 9's which I believe are compatible.

SJS Customer Service:

These V-brakes use a different cable pull to standard V-brakes as they use the same cable pull as calliper and cantilever brakes which means they can be used with standard road brake levers like you Tiagra STI levers. The only thing to be careful of is that the cable routing will be different with these compared to your previous cantilever brakes.

Adjustable Noodle For Shimano R463 V Brakes
18 Oct 2014
Hello SJS,

I want to buy front and back V brakes but with adjustable noodle.

Please could you tell me if the "Tektro 917.12 V Brake Lead Pipe with Adjuster 90 Deg" (SJS Cycles Part Number: 18060) is compatible with the Shimano R463 V brakes (SJS Cycles Part Number: 28788RR).
SJS Customer Service:

Yes that noodle is perfectly compatible for use on Shimano R463 V brakes.
