Hydro brakes are not our jam, but lots of folks have them or are stuck with them for various reasons.  C’est la vie.  Hydro brakes need service, seals get old, bladders leak (happy to say all my brakes lack a bladder, making them less of a bother on long road trips, never having to take a leak), hoses get ripped out, air gets introduced to the fluid and forms Bubbles.  Not Michael Jackson’s monkey, the other kind.  


When this kinda crud happens, your brakes need to be serviced, and often that service requires a brake bleed.  Most brakes use DOT fluid.  Used to be super toxic, not so much any more.  Still, wear gloves, eye protection, wash up if it gets on you.  


You need a bleed kit to use any DOT fluid.  Mainly this stuff is on our site not because we are encouraging people to use Hydros, but because we sell it in our retail store (we’re in a mountain bike hot spot), and need a product page to ring it up.  Works with any DOT fluid brake.  


One Jar does 2 brakes IF: you don’t spill a bunch and get it all over your roommate’s Robert Smith wig collection.
