    Tektro Oryx #992 - difference between 992A, 992G, 992AG?

    One of my tektro oryx brakes on my long haul trucker is inoperable now.
    I am looking to replace it and when looking at tektro oryx #992 parts.
    I see there are 992A, 992G, and 992AG.
    Does anyone know what the differences are between the models.
    I looked at a pdf download from the tektro site and it doesnt mention what the difference is only how to install them.
    Any help would be great!
    Thanks!

    The 992A comes with standard pads.
    I never heard of a 992G.
    The 992AG comes with pad holders and removable pads.

    Thank You! Awesome!
    I have a nice set of replacement pads already, so looks like either will work for me.

    If you're replacing your brakes (not clear from the OP), have a look at the Tektro CR720 brakes. A nice upgrade IMO.

    I went in the oppisite direction. The CR720s interfered with my rack so I replaced them with the Oryx. Since I already had the good pads from the CR720, I bought the cheaper Oryxes and swapped the pads over.
