Cane Creek 200TT Levers & Shimano BR-R550 Cantilevers

I'm looking for a set of brake levers for my Syntace Strato bullhorn bars. I have Shimano BR-R550 Cantilever brakes.

Will the Cane Creek 200TT reverse levers work with my brakes and bars?

You will also need new cables, those levers require MTB style brake cables.

Hm... Inverse brake levers with cantilevers? What kind of strange combination are you setting up? My mind is awash with possibilities. A gentlemanly city bike, or a hardcore cross machine, please tell me?
