Hi. Hope someone can help as I'm majorly confused?!
Decided to upgrade the brakes on my single speed crosser / winter trainer. Thought I'd go with TRP CX9s, not least as PX are doing a good deal at the moment. My bike is fitted with Tektro drop levers which seem optimised for "linear pull brakes" as below:

The CX9's are sold as being compatible with Shimano levers:

The CX8.4's say compatible with SRAM and Campag levers:

Anyone know which would be best with my existing Tektro levers :shock: :oops: ?
cheers

    Think my RL520 levers are sold as "long pull" so presume the CX9 are best. Gonna give them a go, might try the Midge bars too while I'm on the PX website
