multiple Hydro levers?

I am currently riding with a BB7 front disk with two sets of levers (reverse and interrupter) on trekker bars. I really like the setup but recently rode a bike with hydro brakes and am sort of lusting after that kind of braking power.
Is it possible to tee a hydro line to multiple levers? Can I even buy a lever and MC without a caliper?
I am a CLyde and certainly not a weight weenie..

There's a company called trickstuff that builds a wire-to-hydro converter, https://www.bikeradar.com/news/articl...nverter-27723/

Might be a bit crowded with interrupter levers too, but otherwise it'd do the trick.

If you were using Magura's Hydro Stop rim brakes, HS 33, it would be simple..
they are a closed system, the lever has a bleed screw to get all the air out.
it is possible to use the bleed screw as a supply fitting,
then move the bleed function to the new end of the supply of fluid pressure.

but they no longer make anything but straight bar master-cylander levers.

cable to hydraulic conversion systems have just hit the German Eurobike Trade Shows.

If you have to ask' how much?' , 1st be seated.
