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)

Bullhorns, U-Brake, reverse lever question

I have a U-Brake currently

I was wondering if a TT Brake like this would work fine with the U-Brake?

Sorry if it seems simple, just not being able to look at the levers in person makes it hard to tell mechanically how they work and where the cable is routed (I need it external)

Thanks

(If anyone has an extra that would be superb)

U-brakes used the same pull as regular cantis. V-brakes require a different lever. You should be fine with the lever you linked to.
