    Tektro Lyra With Canti Levers - Cantis with Claris

    I'm swapping around some bars between commuters. My wife is having trouble reaching/using the brakes on her drop-bar commuter, and has requested swapping out her drops for MTB bars.

    She's got Shimano Claris STI shifters and Tektro Lyra disc brakes.

    I've got an old 1991 Marin MTB that actually feels pretty good with drop bars, and runs center pull cantis.

    I want to run her Claris brakes/shifters with my cantis, and my old Dia Compe Canti Levers with her discs. I think it'll all work as all levers involved are Short Pull. Her Lyra Road Disc Calipers are "road specific" for short pull levers, and my old DIa Compe Canti Levers are for short pull canti brakes.

    Am I on the right track?

    It sounds like it to me. Can't see why it wouldn't work fine.
