Having some clearance problem on the rear wheel (wire hitting tire). Looks like Cane Creek Direct Curves might help. Does that design provide more clearance than my Avids? Anybody tried both? Or, who's got the longest armed brakes out there?

And, yes, I know that disks would solve the problem.

A smaller tire would fix it, too.

Brake arm length does not change much from brand to brand. Longer arms did more cable pull which affects which levers will work.

I'm inclined to think mr. fisher wasn't contemplating bigger tires when they built this...or, could they have messed one up?
I don't know much about your problem, but it would help if you give more info on which frame, rim, brakes and tires you're using.

If you've got plenty of clearance between the sidewalls/side knobs and the brake calipers, you could try moving around the shims on the brake pad holders, so the brake calipers are closer together and more upright, forming a less wide V.
