    Tektro vs Deore V-brakes

    I put a suspension fork on my old bike, so I have to put a v-brake on to replace the cantilever brake. I've got a Deore v-brake extra. Should I swap that out with one of the Tektro's on my primary bike or just put it on the old bike?

    Basically, what's better: Tektro or Deore v-brakes?

    Never heard of Tektro so can't comment, but the Deore V is not bad. Not great, but not bad.
    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.

    Theyre about the same. I'd go for whatever's cheaper/easier.

    Thanks. That's what I thought. They look about the same anyways. I'll probably put the Deore on my main bike to see if I notice a difference.
