V brakes on a drop bar bike
edited January 2013
I have a set of Tektro RL520 levers on my single speed. These apparently work with V brakes. Does anyone know if I can use Shimano Acera BR-M422 V brakes or do I need specific mini-V's.
Standard V-brakes like the Acera will work (I use
Deore M590 V-brakes
with RL520 levers and
on my Surly LHT), I recommend fitting
for brake adjustment as well.
Great! Thanks for that.
