    Which disc brakes for 2002 C'dale Scalpel

    I have a 2002 Scalpel with worn out Magura Julie's and need to replace. I found a used set of Marta SL's or may go with the Avid BB7's. I don't have post mount... Which will be easier to set up/work with my IS mounts?

    IS on the scalpel would look clean but just plain in the A$$ to space. Assuming you have the lefty. The PM mount would be easier to set up than IS but you gotta put the adapter on. have it set up both on my lefty prefer the IS look but again I have the upright bike rack, and I hardly remove my wheel.

    No lefty,,

    My hope is that the IS mounts are spaced for the newer brakes. My rotors are 7" front and 6" rear I believe..

    Marta would be nice, light and clean on the Fatty, it only require the initial set up. PM is obviously easier to center the pad. If you want to stay with 7" front you still need to get adapter so it does not matter.

    I'd go with PM.
