    Work with road levers for cyclocross!

          Comments about Tektro 926A Mini L-Pull Brake:

          This BMX caliper is a great budget brake for cyclocross. Before I found these I was using a different mini-V with a problem solvers travel agent to eliminate the fork jack I was getting with cantilevers. This is a cheap and simple replacement without all the monkey motion of the travel agent.

          Had no issues setting it up with road levers. Jenson says "rear only" but they work fine on the front. Works almost as good as the TRP mini-Vs my son has on his bike, for a fraction of the price.

          Does not include bolts or a noodle, make sure you have this stuff already or order.

            Comments about Tektro 926A Mini L-Pull Brake:

            Bought these to deal with a hybrid comfort bike/commuter/beater conversion to road bar/cyclocross-wannabe/commuter. Original G.Fisher Zebrano had v-brakes and flat bar. End result has road bar and inexpensive Shimano 8-spd shifter/brake with a different cable-pull ratio than that needed to safely stop with v-brake. After reading the reviews on these bmx-size linear pull brakes, I decided to try them.

            They work - though you still have to keep the pads fairly close to the rim in order to get max stopping power.

            These brakes are excellent for the price. The fit is a little tight on a mountain bike and little clearance available for the tire. Install was easy and set up in a flash.

                I was going to buy a set of TRPs but decided on these for the money. They may not be as cool or light, but deliver 90% of the performance for 10% of the price.

                  Comments about Tektro 926A Mini L-Pull Brake:

                  This brake made my Lemond a fun bike to ride. The factory spec'd Avid Shorty 4 brake on the front drove me crazy with its squealing. Nothing I did could silence it for more than a few miles. I ditched it and bought this Tektro brake for an awesome price. Instant relief! Now I ride silently.

                  Only downside I see is that I need to buy a bell. That, and an adapter so that I can back off the brake cable tension to remove the front wheel.

                  I bought a pair of these for a drop bar conversion. They work excellently with STI shifters (mine are Shimano 5600). I installed this week and so far no complaints.

                      These Mini-V-Brakes work great with Shimano Ultegra Road Shifter/Brake Levers, inexpensive and easier to set-up then cantilever brakes. Jenson is out of the fronts, but just move the pads to make a front set.

                        Very nice mini-V brake, especially for 10 bucks. Replaced some well-worn Avid 5 v-brakes on a cyclocross bike. Big improvement - nice and stiff, easy to modulate, stock pads are very quiet. If you need mini-V's, you can't beat these for value. And a mini-V is the same thing, regardless of whether it's labeled for "BMX", "City", or "Cyclocross".
