I have a cyclocross bike, it came with Tektro Lyra brakes - they were useless so I fitted a flat bar so I could use my spare hydraulic MTB brakes.
I'm just about to buy some new brakes to replace the Lyra's and allow my bike to use the drop bars again.
Out of these what would you get?
- TRP HY/RD
- TRP Spyre
- Shimano RS505
I keep thinking that I will be disappointed with the Spyres even though I can see them fitted on some fairly decent Giant bikes. If I shell out for the HY/RDs I keep thinking might as well pay the extra for the RS505s, but then I might need to get some more tape for my bars and some other costs that I haven't thought of. (I could buy an old banger car for the price of those brake levers!)
What would you do?
