Brake bleeding process and recommendations

Brake bleeding is a task that is often overlooked, but is an essential part of your mountain bike maintenance routine. It is important to perform brake bleeding regularly because it ensures that your brakes are working at their best. This means that you will have better control over your bike and be able to stop in time for any obstacles in the path ahead.

There are two types of brake systems used on mountain bikes: hydraulic and mechanical. The difference between these two types of brakes involves how they work internally, but both require the same basic procedure for bleeding them after they have been installed on your bike. In this article we'll discuss how you can go about bleeding either type of mountain bike brake system so that you can ensure your safety while riding!

Brake bleeding is the practice of purging air from the brake system, which can be done in a few different ways. This is important to do on a regular basis, as it ensures that you have an efficient braking system. The process will require you to use some basic tools and materials including cycling specific brake fluid, a syringe and a piece of rubber tube. The first step is to remove any air from the master cylinder by injecting brake fluid through the bleed nipple located at the top of each wheel. As you inject the fluid into the line, all of the air will begin to escape from the caliper and then out into your hand or container. You will repeat this process until no more bubbles appear in your container or hand after injecting fluid into either one.

Once all of this has been completed, make sure that there are no air bubbles remaining within your system before riding again!
