    Magura disc brakes

    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.

    The consensus for magura brakes is that they SUCK. Dont get them....their the worst disc brake made (almost).
