Hi all, picked up a hardtail lately, its an older Kona, wanting to change a couple things on a tight budget etc. I am just looking for some info on the brakes (pics below), if anyone can stay awake long enough to read through the below essay, any help is much appreciated.
I have been reading some conflicting bits and bobs about calipers which look like these ones, I am unsure if they are "HFX mag" or "G2" or indeed if this is one and the same. Are these better in some way than the Hayes 9?
I also read these are possibly a 22mm caliper which has a different mount.... different IS mount to accomodate larger caliper? Also read they are possibly worth a bit of money to people who like that sort of thing?
Thinking of changing them for some Formula K18 as I run them on my full suss and are cheap secondhand/reliable. I am open to suggestions though on what brakes to buy, budget under £50 which will just about get me some k18's on ebay....
So any tip's anyone? Thanks all.
