So simple - get the kit now!!

I recently bought this kit as I had a very soft rear brake. Read some reviews and this looked to fit the bill. Sure enough kit arrived super quickly and I promptly forgot all about it!

Nevertheless I opened the pack at the weekend and I had the job done in 5 minutes. Clear instructions even a fool could follow. I'd happily buy another kit if I change brake kits. Everyone should have one.

Works a treat !

Always thought bleeding brakes was a bike shop visit. I'm reasonably good at servicing my bikes but never thought I could manage this.

The price of the kit made me take the plunge, it was so easy and worked perfectly. Just make sure you have a clear working area and don't drop or lose any of the parts you remove.

Shimano Brake Bleeding

The product worked very will. I was able to bleed my spongy brake with no problems though I then discovered the problem was a leak in the line. After repairing this, I again bled the brake. The instructions didn't include my model but this was not too difficult to work out.

Does exactly what it says with very helpful guidance.

My previous experience of bleeding brakes was a disaster and so I've been shying away from trying again ever since. At last I decided to try out the kit from epic bleed to see if bleeding could be painless! I was pleasantly surprised! Kit contained all you need, worked well and made the job easy! Instructions on the site were particularly helpful. I also made use of the 5 minute Shimano bleed which has got my brakes feeling nice and firm!

Very happy with my purchase which has taken the fear our of bleeding brakes, with top advice and guidance.

QUESTIONS (5)

Do you supply the 20ml threaded master cylinder syringe separately?

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 section

How 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.

Take a look at our Bleed Block Kit or our online guide explaining how to make your own.

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.
