      The standard brakes on my Redline gravel bike took a lot of effort to stop. These new brakes work so much better!

          Comments about Tektro 926A Mini L-Pull Brake:

          These brakes instantly cured the brake squealing issues that have plagued my commuter bike for the past decade. They were easy to install as I have inline brakes levers. (If you only have STI style levers, you'll need to install longer housing and rewrap your bars.) Another reviewer stated that their brakes didn't come with hardware; however mine came with everything. The bolts were too long to install on my old Winwood carbon fork, needing to be cut down a bit. I also swapped out the brake pads with the ones from my old brakes as the stock ones are just cheap pads. As other's have pointed out, the wheel is a bit hard to remove unless you have an inline adjuster. I was able to set them up so the modulation felt good and I could (just) get the cable out to remove the wheel with 35mm tires. While the TRP options are nice, these are tough to beat for the old commuter bike.

              Put some longer pads ( MEC.ca , 3.75 cad $ per pair ) and these caliper gonna perform like a good side pull set . Stoppies possible .

              Stronger than canti's

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Tektro 926A Mini L-Pull Brake:

                  These are more powerful than canti's because their pull ratio is different. It is not so different as to make them incompatible with road levers (as with normal V-brakes), but there is a difference. As a result, along with stronger braking, it is tough/impossible to get a nice short free stroke in your lever while also being able to open the brake up to take the wheel off the bike. Because most road brake levers do not have an in-line cable adjuster (the adjuster is usually on the brake itself), I had to add one to each brake to make it possible to get wheels on and off without deflating the tires. This doesn't make these a bad product, my friend loves them and feels much more secure knowing she can stop, so they are actually quite good, especially for the price. It just takes some extra effort to make them work on most setups. It would be nice if a cable adjuster was built into the end of the 90 degree noodle at the top of the brake.

                    Replaced my Canti's which were hard for me to adjust and get dialed in - constant adjustments needed. These are simple and give me enough tire clearance for my cross tires - Happy Happy

                    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.

                      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.
