How to Bleed Your Bicycles Brakes

To bleed a bicycle brakes, you would typically follow these steps:

  1. Clean the area around the bleed nipple with a clean rag.
  2. Attach the bleed block or funnel to the bleed nipple.
  3. Attach the syringe to the other end of the tube.
  4. Fill the syringe with brake fluid.
  5. Open the bleed nipple and slowly push the fluid through the system, using the syringe to draw air out.
  6. Close the bleed nipple when all of the air has been removed.
  7. Repeat steps 5-7 until no more air bubbles are coming out of the bleed nipple.
  8. Test the brakes to make sure they are working properly.

Bleeding bicycle brakes can be a messy and time-consuming process, but it is an important maintenance procedure that can help to keep your brakes working properly for many miles. If you are not comfortable bleeding your own brakes, you can take your bike to a qualified mechanic.

Additional Tips for Using a Bike Brake Bleed Kit

  • Use the correct type of brake fluid.  Using the wrong type of brake fluid can damage your brakes.
  • Be careful not to over-tighten the bleed nipple. Over-tightening can damage the threads and make it difficult to bleed the brakes in the future.
  • Use a clean rag or towel to wipe away any excess brake fluid. Brake fluid can be corrosive and can damage paint and other surfaces.
  • Be patient. Bleeding brakes can take some time, but it is important to be patient and not rush the process. Rushing can introduce air bubbles into the system, which will require you to start over.

With a little practice, you can learn to bleed your own bicycle brakes. This will save you time and money, and it will help to keep your brakes working properly for many kilometres of riding.
