I JUST ORDERED A SET OF TEKTRO MINI Vs FOR MY CC. ANY TIPS OR POINTERS FOR SET-UP? I HOPE THAT THEY WORK BETTER THEN MY AVID SHORTY 6s!

My spare bike (Sunn Cycloss) has Shorty 4´s, I am trying to get Mini V`s for ages now. Shorty are a mayor pain to setup. Once I like the brakefeel, it´s impossible toget the cable hooked in, so few rim clearance.

Please keep us posted with your progress, my LBS will soon have Mini V´s as well, seem like good upgrades for a heavy spare bike.

The Tektro site has a dealer search. Set up is as easy as any V brake. To work with Sti shifters the slack on the cable is so that you cant release it from the noodle to change the rear wheel. That is unless im missing something.

otherwise the mud performance is good.

Will the road performance be better then with my Shorty 6s? I am looking for a crisper more positive feel.
