hydraulic brakes

Does anyone out there remember the hydraulic brake levers with aero hoods? It's been a while since I last saw them.

If so, who made them? Do you know where I could get a pair?

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

yeah - my thoughts too

I'd like to try this:

Frame Cyclocross with disc tab option
Fork 700c disc
Headset
Stem 10cm
Handlebars 44cm
Brake levers aero hydraulic
Shifters Rohloff twist shifter
Derailleurs Rohloff speed hub cc disc 32 hole 15tooth
Front hub disc 32 hole
Skewers - Shimano
Spokes stainless straight gauge
Rims Mavic CXP33 black 32 hole
Tyres
Crankset 172.5 38 tooth
BB
Seat post
Saddle
Brakes Hope Mono mini
Pedals

It will only happen toward the end of the lifespan of the current bike though.

Magura Hydrostop HS66 Road. They're rim brakes that fit on canty studs and they are great. I have a set with the straight bar levers on my mountain bike. I don't know if just the levers were ever available separately.

Thanks for the help gents.

I've just spoken to Drew(UK sales manager) in Magura's German office. 50 pairs only of the last ever production run of HS66 aero brake levers is due sometime in the next couple of weeks. The only Magura disc brake calipers compatible are Julie. Other manufacturers brakes MUST be a mineral oil, low pressure system to be compatible. Also check the hose fittings.

The levers may (depending on a number of factors) be more or less expensive than GBP116 per pair. Factors like Magura weren't quite sure of a final price yet.

So if you want some for that cyclocross or SS project bike I suggest you get in there quick. I know you can order them through Condor Cycles but I am biased.
