I have just fitted a rear magura hs33 raceline and the lever pulls nearly all way back to bars. Do they need a bleed and where to get them done in Bristol, don't want to buy the bleed kit @ £25
Okies, having had several sets of Maggies, and currently running a set on my Cindercone the whole process for bleeding them is not that difficult. (Would cost you the same as a bleed kit if you paid for someone to do it) youtube is a great source of videos to keep things simple rather than trying to explain (Look out for the crazy trials bike dudes, who bleed and fill with Water!!! Apparently a common procedure in the trials world) Anyway, fluid i get mine from local Auto parts shop, its fraction of the price of Magura Blood but just as good, and according to the bottle is as used in Bentley cars.........Things to check, If yours have the on-the-fly red adjusters check the position of them, also silly question but you are setting them up with the wheel in place? also position of the shoes against the rim should be similar to conventional brake blocks. If you are still getting full lever movement to the bars then bleed is deffo on the cards. you can also download the Magura HS instruction manual which does have a wealth of info which can be applied to pretty much all mk's of HS brakes.
Persist and you will have some great Rim brakes which will stop you on a sixpence everytime
