    Broken breaks, seeking replacement. Little help please?

    Well I finally managed to break my 2003 Magura Julies hydros, I guess that's what happens when you take a tumble at 30mph onto hard pavement. Bad news is I can't seem to find any replacements that match the original hardware. While I can look around at possible replacements like the Hayes Stroker trail or the Avid Juicy 7 I can't make a decision without being sure that the new breaks will fit. It's easy to measure items like the fork and frame mount bolt spacing dimensions while others like the hub flange offset are more difficult. Given the bike below and the component list from the webpage can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm sorry in advance that I can't pass along the original manufacturer page but it seems to no longer exist.

    Thanks in advance for any and all help

    Broken Parts:
    Front Master Cylinder - Clean Break
    Rear Master Cylinder - Shattered
    Front/Rear Calibers - Cracks around mounts
    I suppose I should write something here.....

    You should be able to use either one of those BRAKE setups without any issues.

    But it would be easier to look at your BRAKE system with a current picture of the mounting points instead of a web picture from the drive side when BRAKES are on the non drive side.

    Hub flange offset is produced to a international standard (with some tolerance).

    Thanks for the quick reply, I'll post some detailed images after class tonight. Of the two brake systems, is there one you would recommend over the other?

    Here you go, sorry about the grain/blur/ugly template. Good news is that I found someone with a replacement rear break.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Looks like the standard ISO 51mm brake mount. You can use pretty much any brake system you want.

    No. That's a 74mm post mount, not an ISO 51mm.

    Maybe it's time to change your signature to something about the obvious differences between post mount and IS mounts
