    Need help identifying Tektro levers.

    I have an old pair of Tektro brake levers that I'd like some help figuring out if they're designed for cantilevers or v style brakes. I have both types of brakes and would like to match these levers to the right brakes.
    Hope the pics are self explanatory. Also on the back there is "TK" and a + sign in a circle. I think they are from 90's, maybe bmx bike. Maybe used for side pull brake, which I think would have same pull as canti's.
    Also, they have a choice of 2 places for the cable ends, assume for different tension.
    Anyone recognize them?
    Thanks, Don

    If I remember correctly the dual cable seat positions allow the levers to be used with either canti or v-brakes. Upper seat is for cantilever and side pull brakes, lower seat is for v-brakes. Like I said, if I remember correctly.

    Thanks Squash. I googled around a while and finally found a post by an owner of the levers. Congrats, you do remember correctly. The more inset position is for canti's and sidepulls. I scratched a c and v next to the holes.
