Frankenbike braking seems weak. Combination as above or would cantis be better? If so I need a set as I karma'd the ones I took off :facepalm:

Off to Winchcombe beer festival at 11 so will have a look at this later if capable.

Shimano 105 road levers with SRAM v brakes at present. Have all hangers etc to convert back but no actual brakes and the little connector cable thingies so if that's what I need please offer.

NO

roadlevers pull less cable with more force so you would need a cable pull converter.

Cane creek make a higher end version of the diacompe's or rather diacompe make a higher end version and cane creek badge them.

Tektro RL 520's are another set of v compatible drop levers.
(In fact I may be getting muddled on who makes the cane creeks)

The tektro's are only £19 so well worth a punt.

The alternative is to keep the levers and buy some mini-v's (google it)which were invented for CX. Problem with them is they sit very close to the rim and can be hard to get tyres past.

The adapters don't have a great rep.

standard road brake levers (like the ones in your pic) will pull cantis fine, so will work on any bike that has cantis, doesn't matter if it's a road bike or MTB. If you want to use Vs then you need other levers, or an adaptor.
