Just trying to find out if any one is using the Monty Hose Splitter and does it carry any benefits as iv had I look at them on tarty and it says you'd be suppressed at how well splitters work. But id like to know if any one can give me some hands on advice from people who have used them as im currently building a gu typhoon n wont it to be a good mod bike.

In terms of physics it makes no difference, it's a fluid filled system, therefore the pressure you put in at the lever is still split between the slaves.

The splitters do make life better though, I use mine with two M8/M6 slaves, with the M6s blanked so you have each line that comes from the splitter going into a shroud nut and olive, this makes it far harder to kick either of the lines off when you're riding.

told you they'd come! :lol:

That's the way I see it too though, makes sense

I've finally got a frame now where I stand a chance of kicking my crossover off, so if I manage to, I'll probably try a splitter

the thread size of the fittings on the brake hose :) if you go for the splitter option, you'll have to make an extra hose up and get an extra bleed screw to plug the slave cylinder, get M8 fittings for the hose and use the bigger holes on the cylinder body

Good that you're spending time building it right, A well built and maintained bike is far nicer to ride than one you slapped together quickly because because you were eager to ride, it'll also perform better and be less likely to fail :)

IF you've just bought a brand new bike, then no don't bother. By all means change the pads (if the magura comes with standard magura pads) look into grinding your rim or using tar befor thinking about buying a splitter.

Splitters only make the pads pull together more evenly, increasing bite, they don't make the brake hold better or make it more powerful. They do make your brake harder to bleed though.

In my honest opinion, they arent worth the fuss!

Bleeding is effort, I have snapped a shit load of cables because of it!

A nice braided hope crossover is exactly what you want!

iv got a sort bit of braided hose from my dh bike it will make two crossovers easy u think that wud be the better why ?

Because you wont snap it and it'll still be easier to bleed than using a splitter... If you don't have much experience bleeding a brake i wouldn't use a splitter.
