Recommended Posts

Looks like magura Direct Mount but it's long, the forks can take a 24" or 26" and the mounting holes line up with both 24" & 26" rims.

The forks are unbranded, not sure on age or brand, I think they've been resprayed as there is over spray inside the screw threads, so maybe they were initially unpainted

Not sure how best to mount the Magura IDM mountings to the frame mounts

Different angle of the mountDSC_0019.thumb.JPG.6b0c3587c1255fd448fb41399429fa5d.JPG

And a piece of blue foam I cut to what I expect the original spacer /mounting hardware to look likeIMG_20220114_141551.thumb.jpg.5bb0656d5eee1cad08722e614788d1b9.jpg

Sorry if this is the wrong place

 I only acquired these about a week ago, and don't have any trials friends I can ask about this kind of stuffany help identifying the forks or how to mount the brakes safely would be grately appreciated

Oldskool! They are 24/26" mounts (can use both wheel sizes).

You need spacers to go between the 'low' part of the mount and the clamp (only the small bit at the right hand end of the blue foam you made).

Thanks for this info, can you shed light on years these where made (roughly) or manufacturers that used them, or anything of the sort

I'll find some material, to make a spacer for the inner bit and get some longer M6 bolts and shorten them so they are just off bottoming out in the frame threads

Hmm, perhaps Onza and Mission. Early 2000s maybe. 

Bolt size is normally M5...

M5 you say, I'll have to remove a different bolt from my 2004 Onza Tmag and measure it with my gauge, I thought it was M6 but I could be wrong, got a lot of thoughts in my head atm

I was wrong, it was M5, not sure where I picked up the idea of M6 from, I must have measured it wrong in the past

M6 is used for V brakes and conventional cantilever studs (i.e: the normal magura 2 bolt mountings).

As adam said, a couple of packers of aluminium will sort it out, other than that, can't help :D
