As the thread title says, I'd be interested in feedback on the differences between these brakes:
Campagnolo Veloce (85mm) - €58
Campagnolo Mirage (85mm) - €50
Tektro Mini-V (80mm) - €36
These are the options I have from this Geman eBay shop, if anyone has other convenient options for a European I'd be happy to hear them.
I'd be using these with Shimano 105 STI levers. Converting from Shimano Altus cantis which are dreadful.
What are the issues with 85/80mm - which is better for braking, what are the trade-offs (clearance?) Am I right that 80mm should require less cable pull (and thus work better with STI shifters) but have slightly less clearance?
