Im after a set of the old Magura hydraulic rim brakes for a fixie project of mine. Want a front and rear complete brake set, ie callipers, levers etc. I need a fork with the specific mounts too, preferably carbon, but must be 1 1/8" ahead.

Thanks.

I presume the former, but by "specific mounts" do you mean 4-bolt (trials) mounts, or something else?

Ive seen another set again. Road levers, but the callipers mount on the rear with a funny swinging out type quick release. I cant find a picture to explain. They look totally different to both of those though.

Do you mean Firm-Tech mounts?:

http://www.magura.com/en/products/rim-b ... ch-33.html

I don't think they were ever sold as a standard set with drop levers. Very few manufacturers have ever used the Firm-Tech mounts - they're only common on Magura forks.

Good luck.

Ive seen a road bike with them fitted, I assumed that they were the factory ones!! Obviously not!!

Oh well, Ive got time on my hands.

Thanks.
