CA 2.0 23mm Rims & brakes

Looking to use 23mm rims on the CA 2.0, the stock brakes do not allow for wheels that wide, regular brakes wont work since the X-eyed CNC Dual Pivot are upside down built.
 
Anyone have a solution to this?

    I use the new Easton EA90 SL wheels on my CA2 and no problem with brake clearance. The rims are 24.5mm wide (19.5mm inside). I use the stock X-eyed rear brake. Also I use 28C wide Conti 4000s which are really wide when inflated.......over 32mm. I do have to let air out of the tire to get the rear wheel off and on the bike. I'm using Bacchetta's new disk carbon fork on the front with a disk brake. The 28c 4000s tire fits fine in the fork but will not clear the stock front X-eyed rim brake. Disk brake on the front works way better anyway.

    Generally with any rim over 20mm, most brake pads either need to be worn or shaved down a bit to work properly with the X-eyed calipers and pad holders. I use a small wood plane mounted in a vice, put the pad in its holder, and plane down a few mm. I am running Flo30s and Hed Jet Plus (24-25mm) and have to remove close to half the pads useful life to get the adjustment I want. 
     
    I think the Schlitter J2 brakes might have a few mm more room. I thought I asked John a while ago, but if I did I forgot the answer.
