    Spyres & BB7s with Altus brake/shifters?

    I bought a set of TRP Spyres to put on my main ride replacing my BB7s. I have another bike I'd like to put the BB7s on. It comes with Shimano Altus 8-speed. I will eventually replace them, but was hoping to do it later. Will these existing shifter/brake levers units work with BB7s or the Spyres?

    This:ST-EF65

    You can use the ST-EF65 with Spyres or BB7 Road brakes when the brake lever is set to the C/R position, when the brake lever is set to the V position you would have to use Spykes or BB7 Mountain brakes.
