I recently got a deal on a new frame for a cyclocross/commuter build. It has disc tabs and canti studs. If I can get mechanical discs at a reasonable price I'd like to give them a shot. My problem is determining whether the brakes I buy will be suited for my drop-bar brake levers. I suppose I could buy V-brake levers but that is another expense, and I already have regular levers to use.
I know I need the right cable pull but I don't know which brakes will have that. I see lots of disc brakes listed as road/MTB which doesn't make sense to me. Any suggestions? Thanks.
