What is the general consensus of the Magura disc brakes? I just picked up a Rocky Mountain with the Magura Julies hydraulics and the seem strong as could be. I have always used v brakes but the bike was such a good deal that I would have bought it without brakes if I had to.
Maggies are usually pretty good brakes

well leaking can always occur to a few disc brake due to manufacturing defects but yeah magura a good disc brake brand.
