Bleeding Brakes

It's been 3 years since I originally purchased my first pair of hydraulic disk brakes and they have not been bled since.   I decided to bleed them but was a bit worried I might mess something up.

It ended up not being too hard. Without this video it would have been way harder...

In anticipation of bleeding my brakes in the future I was shopping for some more DOT 5.1 brake fluid. I found that you can buy the larger container for under $10 (500ml) or the small one avid sells costs $16 (120ml).  Pictured is the 60 ml avid brake fluid that came w/ the bleed kit and the motul 500ml brake fluid that I ordered.
