I'm new to the world of disk brakes but have some very specific requirements and I'm wondering if anyone might be able to give me some answers
Firstly I'm looking for recommendations for an IS mount disk brake, ideally a disk larger than 160mm.
I'm looking for recommendations for a complete setup - I need caliper, lever, hoses etc (everything) but only the one brake, not a pair.
I'm looking to spend around £70-100.
The main thing is that the brake lever *must* be a very similar end design to a 2 finger Magura HS33 lever - the shape of the end of the lever is the most important thing - no ball ends etc.
I've been running HS33s for a while now and have plenty of tools to bleed them, therefore a hydraulic disk which uses the same bleed kit parts (and uses mineral oil) would be preferable - does this rule out everything that's not made by Magura?
I'm not against cable brakes though, I hear the Avid BB7s are nice but the lever is no doubt nothing like the HS33 lever.
I've been looking at the MT2, anyone got one who could compare the lever design and any comments on it?
It's not IS mount though, I presume I would need to buy an adaptor seperately and how does that work with buying bigger disks, wouldn't the brake caliper need to be further out?
Any other suggestions?
