I would not advise the OP to replace their regular V-brakes with mini-Vs, unless their brake levers can be set up for different pulls (many can).
Yes, the TRPs replaced the stock Tektro mini-vs.

These came stock w/ Avid FR5 flat-rate -- and non-adjustable -- levers, which were designed to work with any linear-pull (v) brake and Avid BB7s. The TRPs worked perfectly well (as I defined that above) with those; I then swapped out the FR5s for the SD7s on my mtb -- simply because the latter are nicer/better made.

Whatever. For you, some sort of theory trumps practice/experience. Fine; for me, there have been no compatibility issues whatsoever, so practical application trumps 'theory'. I'm out of this tedious exchange.
