Correct, so many variables such as master cylinder piston size, caliper piston size, pad area, leverage ratio etc..

I have a couple of sets of those silver Mono6 and some black Mono6 Ti on different bikes and while they are great for modulation they certainly aren't as powerful as my Magura MT7 for example.

To me, the Mono6 feel closest in terms of power and modulation to the V4 tech 3 I have on another bike.

I think that's why they stopped making them in the first place - said it was pointless and more for marketing than gains in power.

Anybody have any pictures of their welding jigs? I'm planning on building steel DJ frames with a couple of friends and I'm looking for some ideas. Thanks.
