|Tektro Mini V-Brakes - STI Levers - Do you need pull adapter||zmarke|

|Sorry for the second posting but I am building a cross bike as well.
Will these brakes work with STI shift/brake levers WITHOUT a cable pull adapter that you normally need when using V-Brakes and STI shift/brake levers?

|I've got em on my cross bike with Campy ergo 10 levers and the brakes work fine.

|The issue I've encountered is removing a wheel. In order to get the brake to operate to my satisfaction, I've had to set the cable pretty tight. When I do this, I can't get the brake cable to release in order to remove the wheel without fiddling with a barrel adjuster. I don't think you should have to readjust your brakes every time you take off your front wheel. I kind of think that Tektro realizes this is an issue because they offer a noodle that has a barrel adjuster built into it.|

|I have a similar problem on my cantilever-equipped bike. Here's what I do: When you disengage the quick-release, you should be able to wiggle the wheel from side to side. Move the wheel away from one of the brakes, spring the noodle, and you're done.
Hope this helps,
