I’m getting ready to bay my brakes front and rear but cant decide between the echo cnc rim brake and the magura hs 33 rim brake which is the better calliper if any? Is there a real difference between the two also iv heard a lot about using water instead of brake fluid but will this make the internals rust up in any way ?

The internals can't rust as they are made of aluminium.

Echo brakes should always be used with oil, they can and more than likely will leak with water, there finishing and quality control is poor in comparison to magura.

Maguras can be used with water without issue, as said you will need to oil the master and slave pistons/ seals to keep things running smoothly. The reliability of the magura brakes tends to make them the choice of most.

A friend has some echo TR brake but with oil in it, they are just horrible and they feel like crap. :sick: Buy some maguras, and bleed it with some water! Then, you will have to spend 30 minutes to set them perfectly, and you will have a perfect brake! :rolleyes:

EDIT: and about the internals, aluminium does rust but this creates some white protection cover on it, because contrary to most metal, the rust doesn't penetrate the metal, it just stays on the surface and helps protecting it!

It isn't really rust, its just shit annoying oxidization that doesn't happen if you use oil on the seals.
