11 posts in this topic

Any retro trials gurus able to help me out with some info on these? brought them a while ago but wanting to know more as i've never seen a set like them before. Not sure if they are special edition off a monty complete bike maybe seeing as the hoses are a clear blue colour stamped monty

I think that's the case. What year were they made (there should be casting dates embossed on the bottom of the levers)?

Not all the HS33s had the red adjusters back then - I think that might've been the difference (on the yellow version) between the "Raceline" and "Raceline D").

These look like HS24, red version of the HS24 Raceline D.

Never realised they were HS24, thanks for the info.

I was never 100% but they look identical to Raceline Ds which I think were HS24 (but some people still call those HS22 so I don't know if I can believe anything in life anymore), the HS22 might even have the same lever body, but the 24 looks like it had the fancier blade, the 22 had a cheaper rounded one with a ball on the end. Got a feeling the HS24 might haave been just the Raceline D (yellow) and Johnny T (red). These were all pre 98 before the other colours came out and they made the best lever, then went on to make each lever a bit worse than the last.

So I went digging in my box of parts. I thought I had a set of Raceline D but I don't. Found these though (dates based on casting stamps)...

Top-left, 1994 with sticker for logo, ball-ended lever blade. At the back 1996 with the TPA. Then at the bottom 2002 with the U-section lever blade:

And then 1998, just like the first set I ever bought:

Decided it was about time I salvaged the brakes off an old Monty which has been behind the shed for years, so I went out in the snow. This is 1999:

I think that's a pretty good history of Racelines ; )

I had those exact brakes on a Monty from about 1996. They are basically the same as the regular magura brakes at that time, hs22, but they had a different sized piston custom for trials that made them more powerful but less modulation.  The clear hoses were unique to Monty as well.

It was a square downtube model just before they switched to ones with the bent frame and no seat. 

 

It was a Monty x lite 221 very similar to this one. It was a great bike and they were great brakes.
