I have 5700 shifters and I'm using the CX 8.4. I don't have a ton of clearance, but it's enough for my use.

A teammate has those. Tektro's are 80mm as compared to 84mm for TRP's. Also a few grams heavier (5-10g per wheel), and about 1/5 the price. Shorter arms mean a bit more clearance though (and a bit less leverage).

Teammate eventually switched to TRP 8.4's. It's a much nicer built brake in general.

Also, the Tektro's come with mtb style pads, while the TRP's use road cartridge pads (which are easier to swap pads with and find pads for). The Tektro's are a good way to try linear-pull brakes.

Thanks for the reply.

I have ordered some of the Tektros for £20 for the bike. I fancied trying mini v's and at this price point its a decent experiment. They are a bit agricultural in quality though.

I've also ordered a set of Clarks v brake cartridge pad holders with 2 sets of pads for only £9.

Given that fitting them is a bar tape off job, as needs a longer outer brake cable, I wont get around to putting them on for a while!
