    specailized hardrock?

    I have a specialized hardeock and have no clue what the length of the brake hose tubing is and I just purchased some new brakes and the hose length is 1650mmthe and im not sure if they will fit w/o modification. Also will the tektro io rotors that came on the bike be compatible with the new magura Louise bat brakes I just bought.

    Thanks, Tim

    The critical differences to rotors are hub mount and diameter. Get this right and you should be OK. If the rotors are on the wheels already, the only concern is diameter.

    1650 mm is a dead-common length, so it should fit. Most riders leave the hose length as-is, some trim them down a bit.

    Sorry to sound like a total newbie but what is the diameter of the disc?
    is that the measurement given like 160mm. Because my current rotors are 160mm.

    So in theory my old tektro io brake rotors will work with my new magura Louise brakes.
