    levers?

    Are ANY hydraulic levers compatible with ANY hydraulic disc caliper? I want to know if I can run a lever for a magura HS33 (hydro rim brake) on a magura loiuse. Can I just put the barb on the lever into the hose and bleed? Will this work or are the systems too different?
    Hardtail reduces consciousness to a primal state of reacting. Show me that full squishers.

    HS33 lever (closed system) + Magura Louise caliper (open system) = No Go!

    HS33 lever (closed system) + Magura Julie/Clara 2001 caliper (closed system) = Works, but with possible side effects from fluid expansion due to heat buildup from continuous use (ie pads will not retract).

    It must also be noted that the closed system brakes are low pressure systems, so the hoses are not rated for the standard high pressure open systems.
