]Would these be of any use to anyone? I took them off my Marin and after getting ripped off with another set of brakes I need to replace them again.

they are formula R1s brakes. Selling as spares/repairs due to a couple of problems. Front lever is bent. brake works but lever is bent downwards and didn't feel comfortable to me.

rear brake the pistons are too far out. obviously the lever got pressed when off the bike and I can't get them back in. Don't think they're seized though as they move when the lever is pressed and will go back in a bit. more than likely need some fluid pushed out but I don't have the time or inclination to at the moment due to circumstances.

a good source of spares or a project to try and fix up. £10 posted. if anyone has a use for them. Just need to get some money towards fixing my bikes ahead of my fundraising efforts.

please note these are sold as spares due to not knowing what or how much work they need. all I know is they hold fluid, the pistons move when the levers are pressed so could probably be fixed or used for parts.
