@thegoodflow: it’s because you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. Try listening and you might learn something.

@bman33: I do actually own a shimano fly rod and real. Haha. I have no idea if it’s any good though.

Review: Magura's Lightweight MT8 SL Brakes
@mobiller: just found it to be the best and easiest way to bleed shimano brakes of the same technique works with Magura then I don’t really need to listen to these ‘they’re hard to bleed’ comments.

@50percentsure: can you bleed them like this? Because I’ve found this to be the most effective way of bleeding shimano brakes. https://youtu.be/piWBVDh1pTE

@timbud: even still id expect them to outlive my brake pads. 8 months of light use and they’re ready for the bin... typical shimano. To be fair I usually get them to last longer with resin pads but I won’t be getting them again, they’re pointless and warp ridiculously easy. I don’t care about ebikes, road bikes or fishing rods. I’m only interested by what effects me.

Review: Magura's Lightweight MT8 SL Brakes
Are you dizzy bruv? V4’s seriously lack power and the lever feel is rancid. Sharp, rough lever blades that are physically hard to pull compared to pretty much every brake I’ve used add in that they don’t have much power and your living in a world of arm pump. Oh and the levers always rattle and squeak and generally feel like they need a good service even though they don’t. My moto V2’s are better than v4’s. Amazing company though and their customer service was next level.

@forkbrayker: you have to keep them topped up. Every four or five rides do a lever bleed and that seems to sort it. I have absolutely no idea how the air gets in or the oil gets out though.

@bman33: my x01 cassette is over three years old and still out performs my less than a year old XT / SLX and GX cassettes. If you catch a pedal or land one footed you can definitely rip the insert out of a XO1 crank but other than that they’re supposed to be pretty good. I’ve never actually used them myself however I’ve broken more shimano cranks than I can actually remember. The metallic pads in my guides out lasted my ice tech rotors might be my fault though as they might not be designed to work with metallic pads but still replaced them with some five year old centre lines that came out of the dishwasher looking new and perfectly straight. Did I service on my dads XT / LX equipped trek so he could ride during lockdown and the new stuff is almost identical to what’s on his bike. Absolutely no progression at all. The only reason they improved the 12 speed cassettes is because the 11 speed stuff couldn’t handle ebikes. If they didn’t want a slice of that market it wouldn’t have happened. Shimano doesn’t care about mountain bikes anymore.

@timbud: I still use both shimano and it’s nowhere near as good as my sram stuff. Shimano’s works for a year / 18 months and it’s ready for the bin but it doesn’t really matter because it’s cheap but let’s not pretend that it’s a better product because it clearly isn’t. Have a look at this and watch sram absolutely shit on shimano in slow motion. https://youtu.be/kem5Rk863WA

@nmilot92: I don’t care about 12 speed. 11 is more than enough. I’m talking about build quality and performance. Shimano doesn’t work well and it doesn’t last and not just that there’s a whole list of issues they’re failed to address. They’ve done absolutely nothing to address the issue with the brakes. The new brakes are exactly the same as my current XT’s except with a second point of contact on the lever. They haven’t improved the quality at all, it’s the same old tat now just with a extra gear. They don’t listen to their customers, they don’t care about mountain bikes anymore. They’d rather sell fishing rods and components for road bikes and low end mtbs. They’ve done the bare minimum to stay relevant and that’s it. They haven’t even updated the Saint groupset in like ten years or something let alone doing something innovative. I just like picking fun at these deluded fanboys when they say something ridiculous on the internet. Like I said it’s no coincidence we’re all riding sram while shimano’s flogged on the cheap online, if the demand was there that wouldn’t happen.
