Strengths:    Worked well on a cyclocross bike with Sram Force levers. uesd with and without a travel agent. Easy setup

Weaknesses:    Broke after 1.5 years. The adjusting screws stripped out the threads, springs gave up and moving pieces fell apart.

Bottom Line:   
I liked these, much better than any other set of mini-v I have tried from Tektro. Easy to set up, worked well when they worked. Once they broke, they were done.

I replaced them with Tektro BX3v, which are crappy in comparison (spring sucks, doesn't stay adjusted). So, I ... Read More »

My intuition is the longer arms on the RX5 would correspond to greater force applied to the brakepad relative to the 926a. Can anyone tell me about the differences between these? I have ...

Mini V brakes, Tektro RX5 v. 926AL

I plan to put a mini v on the front of my cross bike. It goes mostly on road now, but sometimes takes journeys through parks, mud and dirt. I want to lower the stem on the bike and clean up the front end. Mini Vs look clean and apparently work well. Seems ridiculous to spent the money for TRP m ... Read More »
