Formula? Cheap & reportedly good performance.

Those with Magura how's the caliper rub and ease of a perfect bleed these days? I loved my old Maguras but I'm really appreciating Shimano's rub free rotors and 5 minute bleeds. Somewhat inconsistent levers being the trade-off.

Seems every brake has some little niggle.

No rotor rub, and I bought some cheap bleed kit online...super easy.

Just got my MT Trail sports. They came fully bled. You can chop them down without a rebleed. Took them into the shop as I don't have time. Put the front one on last night to see how it would all go. OMG I love the levers. I was worried about the "carboplastic" parts. They feel super solid. Apparently they make BMW motorcycle clutch parts out of the same material so I am going to stop worrying about it. 

Won't get to ride them for a few weeks, until I get back to the island. I think they may become my new favorite brakes. And, I think I like the aluminum levers better than the carbon as they are a bit more solid feeling.
