For my road bike, I use a 6 inch bar clamp through my spokes to hold my brakes to the rim. Works every time.

I thought the traditional thing to use was a toe strap (remember those?) around the brake pads and tires.


Yep--spare toe strap around the entire rim/tire and brake pads for cross, touring, and hybrids. Run it diagonally over the pad securing hardware on the mountain bikes.
