So I dusted off my old 2003 Kona Roast last weekend and discovered the Hayes HFX-9s where totally shot with sitting for years. I purchased a set of Shimano M615 front and rear to replace the old brakes.
Upon fitting I discovered I needed to bleed the brakes and shorten the lines. I stumbled across this site and ordered the bleed kit. I was a bit sceptical at how easy it was going to be to bleed the brakes as 12 years ago you couldn't find these kind of kits and tips and tricks for bleeding brakes which made things a lot more difficult. Even a few bike shops I asked back then if they could bleed brakes wouldn't do it!
Fast forward to today... Received my bleed kit in the post and it was a total breeze to shorten the lines and bleed the brakes! If there is anyone reading this who has been away from mountain biking for a long while like me and dreading the thought of bleeding brakes this is the place to come for the correct tools and guides.
bought the kit for my road bike. the brakes were really spongy and pulled right in to the bars. Did a 5 minute mini bleed with the kit and it really helped a lot. The kit is great and easy to use, the instructions are easy to understand. Plus a really great price!
We have bought several different bleed kits off Epic, they always come with the correct parts and excellent instructions, making bike brake bleeding simple. On top of all that the price has to make these kits so affordable. If you have any issues/problems, I have found Alex quickly responds to your questions.
Simple process. Something anyone can do at home.
I've only just started riding around a year ago so the process of bleeding the brakes on a mountain bike was relatively new to me. using this kit i was able to bleed the system without any problems at all, the instructions supplied are very easy to follow and explanatory.
more oil would be a huge advantage but there is easily enough to bleed the system and get you going again. 5* all round. great buy.
Works at least as good as a Shimano-branded kit, but less expensive. Dispatched quickly from Epic, and delivery time to Sweden took about a week. If I ever change from Shimano brakes I know where I will get a bleed kit for my new ones.
Unfortunately at this time we do not sell this item separately. Sorry.Is there enough brake fluid for both front and rear brakes? Also can I reuse this kit?
We supply 50ml of Shimano Mineral Oil with each Shimano Bleed Kit, this is enough to bleed both front and rear brakes once. If your brake fluid is old and discoloured we recommend flushing the brake lines through twice to replace all old fluid with new, in this case a second bottle of Shimano Mineral Oil will be necessary.
All of our bleed kits are totally reusable as long as they are cared for and properly cleaned after each use. However eventually you may need to replace the syringe/s with new. These are available in our Spares sectionHow easy is it to clean the kit after each use?
Very easy. When dealing with mineral oil we recommend flushing the kit with clean water and wiping with isopropyl alcohol wipes. Be sure the kit is thoroughly dry before your next bleed. Take a look at our Cleaning Guide for more info.Does this come with the Yellow Bleed Block spacer? Or do I need to get one?
Unfortunately our bleed kits are not supplied with bleed blocks/piston spacers. If you remove the pads from the calliper during the bleed process (recommended) you will need an object to insert between the pistons to stop them from moving outwards when the brake lever is operated.Is it possible to leave the wheel on whilst bleeding? With the rotor in place?
You can do it this way, it's certainly quicker and easier. However we recommend removing the pads from the calliper, resetting the pistons and using a bleed block instead to protect the pads from brake fluid spillages.
Also by not resetting the pistons you run the risk of over-filling the brake system with brake fluid if your pads are part worn. This will make changing your brake pads tricky in the future.
