But of course I'm curious for a reply from Tektro...

To buy you would need a company which has it in stock - did you find any?

Did you see this?
http://www.rideon.fr/tektro/
Perhaps you ask also there and I try (via my bike-dealer) to get in touch with the German Tektro distributor Hartje.


That's a risk. I already got an answer from tektro : they asked me more info about my need, because they did not understand why I wanted only a right caliper. I'm surprised they don't know the strida !! :mrgreen: So maybe a positive answer to anticipate. I'm waiting for their price.

At the moment, I did not find a company that has the caliper alone in stock. Maybe tektro will have some.

You found a nice tektro site in France. Thanks, I just sent them a french email 8)

Big surprise - I didn't expect them to answer that quick :D
Several companies, just like Ming cycle, do not really like to speak with customers...

The link is actually from the Tektro site you posted :lol:

Hello. I'm really interested in the second pair of brakes (if you can buy 2 pairs with extra levers). That was the reason why few months ago I didn't have success with this, i just could't get from anywhere an extra (left or right) lever :(

and thank you.

Hello joeadrian,

sunkist-evo3 and me would like to check first if the mirrored caliper will fit.
We are planning to order just a single caliper to Europe asap.

Either I'll forward you the contact details and you try yourself - or you are patient :lol:
