Cross levers for linear pull brakes
Hi All: First post with actual content, hoping someone can help.
I'm plotting out a hybrid drop bar conversion project and would like to include a cross/interrupter lever with my current linear pull mechanical disc brakes. I've seen this discussed on many other threads but it looks like the Tektro/Cane Creek levers designed for this purpose are no longer in production.
I think I read in a several year old thread (can't find it at the moment) that the Tektro canti cross levers pull more than needed for canti's and so will work for linear pull, but was wondering if anyone knows if that is true of currently available models. Or are any other cross levers others known to pull enough for linear pull (e.g. the Salsas, or Somas). I did see the Pauls, sweet looking, but ouch ($$).
Thanks for any leads.
