What a cool pair of frames.

Interesting to note both the similarities and differences between the two.

A shot of mine out on the local trails.
It is British & it is steel, just not as retro as I'd like. Retro inspired however.

Coo, that's nice Gio.

Ahhh, Magura's: I had them on my Zaskar when I first built it. I changed them for V brakes in 96/7, but I don't remember why :roll:

Thanks Neil.

The old Hydrostops are the original Magura's but you wouldn't know it how well they workl. Took a while to refurbish them but it was worth it in the end

I can't remember if mine were Hydrostop's or HS33's. I do remember that they worked really well and weren't any trouble.

I think mine had the lever fitted that allows the wheels to be changed easily.

It could well be that I changed them because I didn't like the levers and because XT V brakes were THE thing to have.

Anyway, very nice bike, as always.

DB next?
