by cross-pull brakes I surmise you're referring to one of the U-brake style brakes. Never heard them called that before, but that's as good a name as any. My danscomp catalog shows a bunch of models of tectro "u brakes" that all fit onto "diacompe 990" bosses. Diacompe 990 was the company's original U-brake. I guess theydon't call them "U brake bosses" anymore since there aren't any actual "U brakes" a shitmano term I guess, being made.robriw3 said:Can I use a set of Tektro cross-pull brakes on my GT Xizang frame which originally came with U brakes? The Tektro are used on freeride bmx style bikes, but mount in the same location.
