    Magura Marta SL - what's included?

    I just bought a front Magura Marta SL brake from my LBS. The box had been previously opened when they sold it to me. It did not include a rotor. Is this right? Do they really sell hydraulic brakes without rotors?

    That is right. The Marta's do not come with rotors or any of the adapters. Even if you pay top dollar for the Marta Magnesium SL you still have to purchase rotors.

    Its possible ,what size is the box? Is it large enough to contain a rotor ? Have you discussed this with your local bike shop ? If you have what was the outcome of that discussion ? Did you pay for a kit or a caliper and resivuior ?

    OK, thanks for the sanity check. I couldn't help but wonder since the box was already opened. That's OK, I think I'm going to go for the Scrub Components rotors anyway.

    If you want a decent set of lightweight rotors at a very reasonable price, check out the Ashima Origin 8 rotors, listed at 85g for the 160mm rotors.

    Thanks, but I have the financial means to afford the Scrub rotors and I like supporting local/American businesses.
