I have been on again off again with brakes on my bike. I started with some 2008's Marta's loved em, but hated bleeding them. I put on a pair of Formula RX's and they seem nice, but kinda feel more on/off and I like the Magura feel (and German made things in general). So I have been looking at a lot of forums and there have been many positives about the newer MT line of Magura brakes and an equal amount of negatives. The first is power and the light weight, but to what I can gather the new brakes are generally plastic and not metal, minus the calipers, levers and clamp. They call it Carbotecture, but really its just plastic from what I can gather. Anyway one of the main drawbacks is the top EBT bleed port made of plastic, some say its an incredibly bad design an strips easily. Others have mentioned that the overall design of the MT line is poor. The older Magura lines have been rock solid (and made of metal). Any one else have an opinion. I realize some also love their MT line of brakes while others have sold them shortly thereafter.
