Difference between V and Canti brake levers? Answered
I know why a cantilever brake lever cannot be used with a V type brake and vice-versa and thought that I could tell the different types just by looking at the the lever.
I thought that if the lever has a tag like the first picture, for the nipple to sit in, then it is for a V brake...
and if the nipple goes directly in, like the second picture, then it is for a cantilever.
Is this always the case?
Is that correct? I'm not so sure now.
Is there a definitive way of telling at a glance or by measuring, what type of lever I have.
I can't seem to find the answer by googling around.
