I m selling these because every time I try to finish build my karpiel theres always a part that isn't compatable
an to be honest I m pretty fooked off with the whole thing

the rear caliper is IS MOUNT will work with a 205 disc (not supplied as mine is 5 bolt)

the front comes with a 220mm disc 6 bolt but when I mount the caliper POST MOUNT. to my fork(forks is 203 post mount) the caliper is about 30mm away from the disc

I feel like smashing the things to pieces

I live in leeds west yorks I ll say collection only bring your bike an check they fit before you buy
price is £100

I think the front mount works on forks that are 160mm disc
the adaptor on the brake then makes it 220mm

my forks are 203mm without an adaptor that's why I cant use it

honest answer
the front yes
the rear no I don't think but maybe if a + 20mm adaptor is used

why magura chose to use the stupid oddball mounts is beyond me :roll:

I have a another mount coming that I m planning to chop an alter so it may fit my super monsters :D
