  1. A standard magura pad that’s well bedded in is great for street. I have jitsie pads on my Marino and Giant STP - these are super granny but the power fades immediately after you feather the brake, I.e doing a manual. I’d say try the standard pads and if you feel you want more bite then consider jitsie/trial tech pads (which are the same)
  2. Shimano zee levers work well for me
  3. I think you’ll be fine for street riding on an MT4 then
  4. Yeah I asked for a raw finish and a clear coat, they advised against it because it’s not as well protected against corrosion. silver would look great, but I’m a sucker for that BMW blue!

  8. Oh wow, I bet you can’t wait! I’m already excited to see this… build thread?!
  9. 180mm MT5 on the 26inch giant STP: (this has Shimano zee levers). 180mm MT4 on the 26inch giant trials team: 203mm MT trail sport on the 24inch Marino. I also run a MT7 on the rear of my 27.5inch enduro bike with a 203mm rotor. Of all the brakes, the MT trail sport is my favourite. They are sold as a pair, the front is 4 pot and the rear is 2 pot. I run them the opposite way around for more power at the rear and a lighter front end. I also run jitsie pads in the rear. Crucially though, I’m a relatively heavy lad, the mt4 on the giant trials team which I run a smaller rotor with bigger wheels works absolutely fine for me. Great modulation, lighter than a MT5/7 calliper and plenty enough bite to hold when the back wheel isn’t bang on a ledge / rail. It’s also running standard magura pads. A couple of questions to consider the answers to in helping you make a decision: 1. what type of riding are you doing? Natural, TGS or street. Or maybe a mix of all? 2. What bike are you looking to put the brake on? What size wheel? 3. If you are more than 15 stone I’d for an MT5 or 7. hope that helps
  10. I run an MT4 on the back of my giant trials team and it’s plenty powerful enough with great modulation. If you want that extra reassurance an MT5/7 will offer it. They seem to bite just that little bit more. I have a mixture of bikes, and run all three across them as rear brakes.
  11. Hi mate, I can go one better than that… here is everything you need
  12. Congratulations Mark, wishing you both the best of luck with the move. That sucks about the full rent situation, but definitely try to use it to your advantage
  13. Love it dude, looking forward to seeing some more pics! Got a Zebdi in the same paint job that I’m on the process of rebuilding, lovely bit of retro goodness that
