    Velonews CX V-brake review

    TRP CX 9 review

    I don't understand how this is any different at all from the Tektro 90mm "mini-vs" that have been out for years.

    Except the Tektros are a lot less expensive.
    Good night...and good luck

    How about a review on the Campy Veloce mini-V brakes?

    1989 Raleigh Technium, 1989 Schwinn Traveler, 1986 Specialized Rockhopper

    TRP and Tektro are the same company. Maybe the TRP version has nicer hardware or cartridge pads.

    I have been trying to figure out the difference myself.
    They don't seem like an upgrade from the stock brakes on my Tricross- other than their bling status (they are nicer looking.)

    Perhaps the Titanium handles judder better.
