Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

brake/lever combo question

I'm building an IRO Rob Roy for my new commuter ride. The frame is bossed for canti's, and I'm thinking about either Shorty 6's (Avid) or Direct Curve 3's (Cane Creek.) Here's the big question: If I put bullhorns on it, will Cane Creek 200TT levers work with either of those brakes?

TT levers will work with Canti's or caliper brakes, but the Direct-Curve 3's are essentially just V-brakes with a curve, so they will not work.

Avid Shorty 6's it is, then. Thx.
