type/ location this a cantilever /V brake braze on boss ?
for V type brake mounts , now that I tried them, Magura's rim brakes are excellent.
HS 33 , Hydraulic actuated , closed system , mineral oil. German workmanship.
has been in production for 20 years.
Disc brakes need to be mounted on the frame tabs, made for the purpose,
welded on a frame made to cope with the forces.
common on new stuff, now. not in that era,
only other rim brakes were U brakes
those bosses fixed above the rim, not below.
another bike frame, here, mid 80's stumpjumper,
has drum brake hubs in its wheels, now,
instead of using the cantilever bosses at all.
My dreadful weather bike, wears the studded tire tires, now.
