    I never thought that caliper could actually be ugly, or look like Mr. Bill. or ->

    Bet they work well. Love the heat sink banjo.

    X-actly... Magura and Titus have along tradition of working together... Or at least Magura folks like Titus bikes since a long time ago!!

    Yeah, they need to get Pininfarina or Guigiaro to work on their aesthetics... I will not deny that. They're ugly as ... well... something very ugly.

    Talking about Magura... I just received a Ronin 110 that will go on my friend's Zion (my old zion frame) and it looks very cool...it has all the adjustments one could think of... 2 compression adjustments, rebound and lockout..and the finish is great...

    I like the look of the new levers. They finally look like they're solidly put together. The old levers always looked cheap to me, whether they are or not.

    All Mountain good choice on the formulas! Mine are fully broken in now, and holy crap are they powerful. I love how little effort I have to use when braking now. I also love the feel adjuster on the levers, so I can dial in where I want them to engage. I just have to remember not to grab a handful in those freakout moments, because everything locks up solid. But, by the same token this could also save my hide sometime.
    IT'S NOT THE FALL THAT HURTS. IT'S WHEN YOU HIT THE GROUND.

    +2 on the formula call. Installed a 180mm front rotor today for "testing purposes". Report tomorrow. May actually be too much for this 185 lb'er. Hard to believe how strong and light these brakes are...

    Orthorex, I think you'll dig the 180 up front. I have one paired with the 160 rear. Works just dandy for my 175 pound self.

    I got a 180 on the back of my ML. 200mm front , 180 might still be too much, but I'll never admit it.

    Since Warp's Maggie thread has been transformed into Formula ....

    There is a Formula Teaser for 2008 about new a new brake that stops like a 8" rotor with a 7" rotor.

    What are these called ?~?
