i've got a new set of magura louise brakes, the half red/half black calipers and six bolt rotors. everything's ready to go, but so far i've been a v brake users for compatibility and money reasons. new frame and new fork with new wheels mean i'm ready for the discs. drivetrain is on no problem.
first of all, are these brakes any good?
questions during install. both front and rear levers came to me 'prebled' and connected to the calipers. the rear hose seems fine, but the front is the same length which is obviously too long. how to i trim the hose? while playing around with it before hand, i squeezed the levers, and now the pads don't separate. is that normal? can i just pull them apart or sqeeze something in between? how do they separate during normal operation? i'd hate to have them drag on the rotors the whole time.
i'm comfortable and familiar with almost all other aspects of biking mechanics, but the hydraulics are new. TIA
