Thanks. The only worrying part was the drilling of the cable stop as i had to do it on the bike :shock: As i couldn't un-screw it. rubbed the paint but covered with a new Tintin sticker :)
To hold the cable in place i went to a electrical shop and bought a meter of a type of cable guide and used the bottle bolts to hold them in place. For perhaps a better look i could have used 'armor'cable guides but couldn't find them. Will use Mags on all my bikes. At least on the back. My work Trimble has them on the front. Now one finger braking 8) Now just like the rest of London traffic :shock: :lol:

Yep an XT-U brake, :( had to file the gap were the boss goes other wise no problem. If i'd wanted to keep it to the age of the frame then hunted down early 90's Mag's As it was common for owners to do that. I did it BITD with my first.

Thanks fellow retro'ers. I'm pleased as i did it all may self. Mag's are really easy to fit. Do i re-move my purple front and replace with Mag's??

As this will be my main off roader i can see a re-spray will be due before next summer. Then suggestions on colour scheme patterns advice fun from you all :D (depending on if i have any spare ££ for what could be a costly project)
