I read somewhere manufacturers had the headset logo's on the sides for catalogue shots

love those brakes, look in really good condition too.


I hope they bl**dy work as they are by far the most expensive purchase for the whole build! :shock:

Talking of Magura HS33 hydralic brakes..... I've looked at a pdf manual on-line and tried to follow some rambling questions on another forum, but am none the wiser.
I'll be relying on you lot to fill in the gaps.... please :wink:

Like, are these the correct mounting bolts?

Certainly look like the ones on mine though I have the oem brakes and they’re a bit older.

Coming together nicely though.

Carl.

The long bolt is for the quick release but as I abandoned Magura sometime in 1998, everything is a little vague,

Yes, as above, the long bolt screws into brake boss and the quick release just slides on and locks with lever. Slides off so you can remove wheel. The small screw just holds the other caliper on permantly.

Only thing, you may need to source some thick spacers for behind the calipers if running suspension forks, instead of the thin ones in that kit. Stops the brakes hitting the arch. Im not sure about the forks you have, i know you need them with Judy's. Pic below of the thicker suspension washers.

Cheers Mark, I’ll look out for that.
I’ve got a feeling I’ll be posting a lot of questions when I get around to fitting them!

Shouldn’t need those with mx100s. I only have the thin washers and mine was originally fitted with the older mx forks from the factory, although I could swear I had mx400s
