Most people that have hydraulics like them. If I had cash flowing out
my ***I know I would have IBC hydraulic brakes. V brakes make it
possible for anyone to set up their cantilever brakes with high
leverage at the cantis and low leverage at the brake levers - which
is definitely the direction in which off-road cantis are moving.
Either is a good brake.

Your front wheel brake is most of your stopping power.
