Personally, I'd go for black V brakes or cantis, to break up the silver a bit.

I have never tried Maguras, but they only look ok on some bikes. This isn't one of them. But that's only my opinion

Thanks for being honest it's what I was after
If you haven't tried them you must I had three sets in the 90's and one on a bike I built 6 years ago I have some silver lx v's and I think I may put them on to get both views as could use the mags on my Saracen

I have decided to be a little naughty with the bottom bracket I really can't stand square tapers on bb's I really wanted to keep this period but can't bring myself to use one so will be going with a hollowtech 2 as I have on all other bikes there reliable strong and if looked after last years in sticking with silver and I have managed to get one of the first lx cranksets
