Yeah, the job is great so far. It's definitely challenging since it's vastly different than what I did before. I'm really liking it out here so far and I'm looking forward to the winter to do some snow wheeling!

On my cutting brakes I have had good luck by cracking the lines at the cuttings brakes first then bleeding them at the calipers.

Thanks!! I've heard there are some fun trails over the boarder. I suppose I need to get my passport.

So you cracked the lines loose at the cutting brakes then proceeded to bleed the brakes at the calipers?

Hmm, thats certainly an idea. I'd have to see how to retrofit a bleeder screw into them. Usually you shouldn't have to deal with too often but it seems my luck I would have to. haha

Yes, first the in line then the two out lines, one at a time last the calipers. It's not bullet proof but it just takes about two times of bleeding it by the instructions after if I dont get it.

That's good to hear. I hate working with brakes and I'm really fed up spending the past 2 weekends trying to get the air out of them.

Wow, what a small world. I moved here from Navarre and I've got a couple buddies that live in Renton that worked with me in FL.
