Avid Professional Bleed Kit 2013
The Avid Bleed Kit includes every item you could possibly need to do a professional bleed job on your Avid Juicy, Code or Elixir disc brakes.
The parts in the kit appear to quality and the fittings are nice since they rotate without binding the tubing. The tubing clamps are kind of pain to close one-handed. Air always pulls in through the back of the plunger. This kit seems like a substantial hidden cost for owning a set of Avid brakes. It's definitely a step up from the standard kit, but I don't consider it a "got my money's worth" purchase.
Kit does everything it is supposed to, and is a must to get avid brakes running like they should.
the Pro version of the bleed kit may seem like overkill vs the standard kit but the fittings alone make up for the difference. The syringe is much more robust vs the "medical" type. The fittings on the end of the hose swivel as to not require to rotate complete assembly. Bleeding was a breeze. Watch the bleed procedure videos on internet and bleed like a pro.
Don't get me wrong, this is a top notch kit. Well worth the money, and it IS the BASE from which I built my complete brake servicing kit. Highly Recommend!
im no bike mechanic but this kit was very easy for me. it took long to get all the air bubbles out but the time to do front and rear was about 45 minutes. once you get better at it you can probably do between 10-15 minutes. I just went very slow my first time. overall good product!!
Avid brakes are a plain but this is a good kit to service them. Plungers sealed well.
