Completed the installation today. Will not be able to ride bike until I fit a new set of narrower handlebars that I am waiting for.
It was a tricky job, but considering it was the first time I have installed hydraulic disc system from scratch. There are a few parts to identify and find for this project.
First impression is that there is way more power compared to the 2 previous brake systems I have been running on my disc bike with Campagnolo Super record levers (TRP Spyre SLC, and Juin Tech r1). The MT8 Calipers have a definite lock when rocking the bike with bodyweight leaning into motion. With the previous 2 brakes, I could still inch the bike forward with maximum lever force applied. MT8 calipers reach a point where the wheel just cannot move.
In short I am very happy with the results. Will post some another review after doing a weeks worth of commuting (240-300km trough south London)
Build list for those interested (not plugging any of these products, but the hose attachment bolt is very hard to come by, and there are several versions)
MT8 spare calipers, roughly about €70 a piece (does not come with hose attachment bolt)
Magura Banjo's (any aftermarket ones will work, I have seen none that have the correct hose dispatch bolt)
Bolts - this site has been invaluable (https://www.bikeonlineshop.net/search?keyword=mt
) here you can find the hose dispatch bolt, a lighter anodised bleed bolt and a anodised pad retention bolt.
Magura royal blue mineral oil
Campagnolo bleed kit
and a Magura bleed kit, as there are differences.
And campagnolo videoshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeSRrK1BOZohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQk-pUPKOqk
after doing this job and watching their videos, I can only wish the MT8 calipers had the Campagnolo bleed bolt design. Tried the Campagnolo bolt for this on MT8 calipers, unfortunately it did not work
Will post some pictures when I find my camera
Happy to answer any questions
