Yes I understand, the Magura Rim hydraulic brakes are excellent,
but for the less informed, to pull/install, an inflated tire,
You have to remove
one of the calipers/slave cylinders.
there is a Quick release mounting bolt,to facilitate this.
So a front top of the wheel rack that mounts on the same
boss, mid fork, as the low rider rack is a good idea..
instead of the Both canti/V brake bosses, type..
In the midst of a tour when I passed thru Newcastle, Northern England
I got a small rack fabricated quickly by the folks at M Steel /Joe Waugh,
bike makers , there..
so you may find a bike fabricator to make one for you, as well ..
OP being in Germany , should be able to find a shop to knock one out
somewhere near where they live..
Have something fabricated for you.. then you can have features added ..
Light bracket, additional tie down points , a bit wider, become choices.
