I have a Schwinn Super Sport flat-bar road bike.
After 1600 miles, the brakes feel mushy. Probably housing/cables need to be replaced.
It comes with Promax 85mm mini-V (V brake). So, I had this idea to replace the brakes with Avid SD7 (100mm, $19 per). One problem..they don't fit!! Or, can I replace the stud that screws into the boss?
Or, can someone recommend a good replacement mini-V?
I did some research, & the Tektro RX5 have good reviews.
Would the Tektro 926A be a candidate?
Another option is just to keep the Promax 85mm.
I ended up getting the Alligator Super Fortress cable kit (stainless mesh reinforced). I figure I should upgrade the brakes for this fancy cable (i.e., go with a Tektro rather than keep the Promax)
