It's kinda soothing to see that Pros undergo the same insecurities and mental challenges as oneself before hitting an intimidating new feature.

@Korbi777: Great tip... I've done that with all my Shimano and Magura brakes, too. Bleeding with the bleedblock has never worked for me for exactly that reason.

@juliopedro: That's weird, definitely sounds like a defect. MT5 and MT7 only differ in brake pads and levers, so that shouldn't make any difference. Maybe you were just unlucky and received a defective set? Have you checked the brake lines for damage? Any leakage where the lines go into the levers maybe? I've had my share of bad experiences with Magura's Customer Service, so I'm not arguing as a fanboy, but one thing I absolutely cannot state is that there is a lack of braking power. I have been using Saint/XTRs on all my bikes for years and Saint/Saint before that and even Formula The One and Hope V2 before that. The Magura's are without a doubt the most powerful and most easy to modulate brake at amazing price point (in the EU you can generally find them at half of the recommended retail price). I'm pretty certain there is nothing better at comparable price out there. Do you have the old style or the new style levers? I'd recommend to contact the customer service, or, if you're the DIY kinda guy and like a digital (1 or 0) brake-feel, maybe get your favorite set of Shimano levers and throw it on your bike. I know the problem of being able to pull the lever right to the bars, I'm experiencing it with one of my levers... but as soon as I'm on the trail and the brake is warmed up, the power is still there even though my pads are literally down to 10%. I had the same experience with pretty much all my Shimano brakes too, though. Besides, mine was an early set (old style lever). I contacted the customer service, because the little lever-adjuster screw was defect out of the box. They never sent me any replacement... so, in all honesty, they don't even deserve me advocating their products at all. I fixed the screw myself and since I didn't like the levers very much at the beginning, I thought I'd switch to Shimano levers eventually anyway. Ultimately, the levers grew on me... they are longer and feature much more space on the handlebar, plus I like their modulation.

That sound is absolutely obnoxious... had to stop watching. I'm riding the MT7 myself, never had that kind of squeaking on mine though. Only a much deeper "bruuuuuup" sound.
