Magura rim brakes with different rims?

Hi all,
I am wondering how much vertical adjustment there is (if any) for magura rim brakes? Is it possible for instance to put a 29er wheel on a 27.5" unicycle frame (ensuring there is tire clearance using actual frame measurements, and something like this - How to calculate Bicycle Wheel Size to work that out)?


There’s hardly any. If the brake mounts are for a 27.5" rim, then that’s the only size that will work.

I think the only way to do that would be to add another set of brake mounts on the other side of the frame, like Triton does on their frames.

Thanks so much. As I don’t have any yet, and I couldn’t tell for sure from the manufacturer’s spec sheets. I had suspected as much, but I thought I’d check the ever helpful users on this forum. The thing is I have a 26" wheel on right now and am on the lookout for a wheel on the local used market. I keep coming up with 700c/29 that might possibly work for a decent price, but I have been mostly ignoring the ads until today when I speculated that perhaps this could work. I don’t really want to put new lugs on. I don’t know how to weld aluminum/aluminium yet.

Thanks again,
