I'm getting a new frame (see other posts if you want more info) and want to get some black V brakes.

The ones on the bike at the moment ar 185mm linear pull. What do I have to consider when getting a replacement pair. I can't see any reference to 185mm or linear pull on most sales sites. Anone with any recommendation or guidance?

On the new frame the brakes are mini v brakes but I suspect the brakes are particular to the brake levers but is this just between cantilever, V brakes etc or is there a difference between V brakes 185mm and mini V brakes?
