Tektro v brake
I replacing a v brake Tektro Oryx and I bought a Tektro 510. They have same reach and look almost same. Do you think 510 will work just has well? They are easy to google pictures so could anyone give me a read what they think?

It should. Why are you replacing the Oryx? Roger

I agree, why did you replace the Oryx if you only expect the replacement to just work as well? What do you want to gain?

Well, in that case, the new one should work a lot better. :)

brakes are levers they have measured lengths

the ratio of overall length : and pivot to pad distance influence the cable pull demand.
