Which maguras? (and most importantly what colour...)


These ones 8)

They will be arriving with the frame, and just need fresh pads (which my LBS have in stock).

4 hours of faffing, blood, sweat and tears, and she is in one piece minus gear cables and chain. Off to the LBS tomorrow for these.

Old decals removed (took 1 1/2 hrs), polished, new decals on, forks cleaned and bits added.

Will post a new pic tomorrow of her 100% done, but for now heres how shes looking 8)

Thanks to:
Spitoon; X Ray and crank bolts
Dr S; jockeys
Xizang; stem cap
SPESHMIKE; USE post
Dave H; frame/forks, rear mech and Maguras

Oh, and big thanks to my wife for the front wheel, tyres and hours and hours of patience.....I've been a huge arse these last few days and especially tonight :wink:

Thanks :wink:

After sleeping on it last night, I'm going to change the Magura's for V's as I think the Magura's look a little 'chunky' especially the 4 finger levers.

V's will actually look smoother, and the colour of the LX levers and V's will go well with the frame and drivetrain.

It feels bloody light :shock: Going to get it on the scales tonight :D
