I remember fitting a set of these on a customers bike many moons ago. They were rediculously hard to get hold of - the company advertised heavily but just didn't have the ability to make them! The best bit is they were a direct rip off of hopes brakes from the same period so at least you know they are going to be fairly good!

Marzoochi fitted mounts on both sides as back then there was no standard to what side they was fitted. i.e cannondale sachs forks/USE fork.

CHE or whats left were at the 2007 bike show with a twin disc on a recumbent.

look cool.

they don't have much in common with hope brakes , the master cylinder is the same shape but that's about it as far as i can see ? the calipers are 3 piece too and each pad can be manually adjusted with a grub screw .

these look very trick 8)
