Slightly custom Pro Race buildup in progress here! Smile

Does anyone know how to ergonomically matchmake/shiftmix a XTR M9000 trigger to a Magura MT5 lever?
I already figured out I need a new cover for the shifter (34€ o0) and got a I-spec-shiftmix-clamp+adapter from Magura. I ordered a left because if you get it right, the shifter notoriously sits too far to the inside...
Now I can't even install the adapter because the shifter touches the lever - it's not even close. Drives me nuts. I seriously consider a file.
Anyone got a solution? (If figure yes cause most folks will kick the Guides asap.. Wink )

Get rid of the MT5 levers and replace them with XT or XTR levers. You´ll have better brakes and the triggers will fit

Hello, does someone tried to put a 210mm OneUp dropper on their Jeffsy CF 29 mk2 size L ?
I don't know if the bike can accept 297mm for the insert, the e13 dropper (150mm travel) has 267mm max insert.
Thank you for your help.

Magura brakes beat the doors off Shimano. I run MT7s with m8100 levers but I don’t use ispec. I don’t understand the issue with the fit? Do you have very small hands or just don’t like using a clamp?

I have MT7s, but my levers are wonky lately (master cylinder piston stuck leading to lots of play in the lever). I've been considering m8100 levers, but wasn't sure about the feel. Do you get similar brake feel and modulation when you go shigura?

The brakes will feel more like a shimano brake but with more power than a saint.

Does anyone know if the OneUp pump will fit with the Thirstmaster on the Mk2?

It fits on the Jeffsy 2018 AL with the original Thirstmaster

I installed a 210mm OneUp post on my Large MK2. It works well....max insertion leaves about 3cm (1 inch) out from the frame.

yeah, I've heard many good things about Shigura - quite a few strong European riders use it.
Which lever do you recommend?

I'll still try the file first. Wink (cheaper and I'm actually really happy with my MT5s, seem a bit hit or miss but mine work flawlessly)

Thank you for this information. I actually have 260mm between the saddle rail and the top of the frame and the stack heigh of the OneUp 210mm dropper is 243mm. It will be too long if there is 3cm insertion leaves :/ Should I go 210 and reduce the travel or go simply with the 180 ?

I'd go longer and shim it down, since you can shim at 10mm increments. You can't go wrong either way.

I run my Shiguras with XT and SLX levers, the lever blades on the XTs have a nicer feel and you get a free stroke adjust on the XTs (which I haven´t needed yet):

These are the XTs I´m running https://www.bike-components.de/de/Shimano/XT-Bremsgriff-BL-M8000-p43935/
