I know you cannot mix DOT fluid break systems with mineral oil brake systems, but does anyone know if you can run marta calipers with shimano levers? They're both mineral oil systems, is it only a matter of matching fluid displacement of the levers with appropriate calipers? I have personally mixed LX/XT/XTR levers and calipers on a couple of my bikes with no problems. I have another bike with marta brakes and am considering a franken-brake match up. Before I get too crazy I thought I'd see if this has been done before. Any thoughts or opinions on the matter?
If you think I'm an idiot don't hold back.... You certainly wouldn't be alone!
