have you been out on the stumpie yet mike- honest opinion?

agree with you, generalized never did it for me bitd along with scott and cannondales- represented american mass production souless bikes but i have been convinced by the ride, still does not set the pulse racing but the geo works for me.

what ever works for you , widnae do to be all the same

jury's still out on the stumpy tho ,not really ridden it enough
but still in the" i want to like it "camp
i think i'll get it painted sometime as the paint's a little tired , its been
repainted at some point but has then had a john machin cycles dealer
sticker attached ,it appears to be a faded red under the bluey/green
which seems to be a rocky colour (the bluey/green that is )
it looks well cool tho ,well from 20 feet anyway

Well, I know for sure that the Magura website doesn't include these in their present service manual section - but further digging produced a 2003 manual which did...

http://www.birota.ru/manuals/magura/rimbrakes/2003-service-manual.pdf

There doesn't seem to be much difference from HS33's - it says that any differences for either HS11's or 66's are highlighted but it only seems to be the adjustment screw for the pads?

There are probably people on here who know how to do it easier or quicker though.

BTW - you should only need to bleed them if you've shortened / swapped hoses or have a leak - the Magura Royal Blood doesn't absorb water like DOT fluid so its pretty much bleed free in regular use.

Also - if you need any special bits for the bleed, ie barbed fittings etc, Tarty Bikes have a good selection...

Hope this helps - if only a little.

Cheers MisterMonkeyWrench, that is very useful, and I've already ordered some bits from Tarty Bikes.

I need to the take the hose off of the lever to feed it through the guides on my frame, hence the bleed requirement.
