Unidentified levers! V-Brake or Canti?
So I have two left-hand brake levers, and I want to use one of them on my bike. But they're from my parts bin, and I forget what bikes they came off of, so I don't know what brakes they work with!
How can I tell if they are for v-brakes or cantis? I see no identifying marks! They look like v-brakes to me, but is there some way to be sure? Maybe someone has a better eye for these than I do?
They look like tektro levers to me if that helps
The one on the right in the second picture is a v brake lever for sure. Can't tell the other one because you cant see the cable attachment point. If the cable attaches close to the end of the lever, its a v-brake, if it attaches closer to the pivot (inside) its canti
A Canti lever will have about 28 mm between lever pivot point and where the cable attaches, a V-lever will have 35 mm or more.
