Anyone know how to bleed brakes?

Post by jvanhuis on Thu Jan 20, 2011 10:17 am

I have Avid Juicy Carbons, an Avid bleed kit, and a 12 pack of your favorite beer. Anyone up for showing me the proper way to bleed the brakes? I've got a workstand but my only workspace is the driveway, not ideal right now. I can come to you if you've got a spot, and Grandma is here right now so I'm available pretty much anytime. Thanks for any help.

I have done it several time and can help you out. I have bled the Juicy 5's and 3's. Tomorrow night or Saturday night will work. I live in Weilerbach, but am dropping my daughter off at Vogelweh tomorrow night.

Several good YouTube videos out there that show how to do it. Piece of cake if you're at all mechanically inclined.

Sounds good. I will be home about 1900 from my daughters soccer tournament, but any tie after that.
