Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Velonews CX V-brake review

TRP CX 9 review

I don't understand how this is any different at all from the Tektro 90mm "mini-vs" that have been out for years.

Except the Tektros are a lot less expensive.
Good night...and good luck

How about a review on the Campy Veloce mini-V brakes?

TRP and Tektro are the same company. Maybe the TRP version has nicer hardware or cartridge pads.

I have been trying to figure out the difference myself.
They don't seem like an upgrade from the stock brakes on my Tricross- other than their bling status (they are nicer looking.)

Perhaps the Titanium handles judder better.
