Brake combo, peace of mind.

Hello everybody,

I'm currently rebuilding up my old trek 720 multi-track and this time around I'm building it with drop bars. I'm currently looking at buying a set of Tektro CR720 canti's and using them with Tektro R200a levers, because I'm new to all of this I just want to ask to make sure that these would work OK and I wouldn't need any other pieces to make it work like travel agents or anything?

Thanks in advance.

Those levers and cantilever brakes are made for each other. You would only need Travel Agents if you were to use those levers and V-brakes.
