I have a comparable mechanical ability to a pigeon. I successfully managed to bleed my brakes and the next ride I was able to stop before I hit the trees. Good stuff!

Why buy anything else?

This was my second bleed kit from epicbleedsolutions.com and it was just as great as the first. So simple to use with excellent instructions anyone should be able to follow ease. It's beyond me why anyone would use anything else.

Shimano SLX brake bleeding

Far and away the easiest system for bleeding hydraulic bike brakes. I've used two sets now, one for Shimano and another for Hayes. I'm only giving four stars as I find the instructions overly complicated - I just attach both syringes open the bleed nipple and blow lots of clean fluid through from bottom to top taking the air and dirt with it. The instructions seem to achieve the same thing in over ten steps!

Shimano bleed kit

Great little kit. I have only used this for the quick "bubble bleed" so far, but plan on a full bleed this winter during the off-season. Easy to use, quality bits. The issue I had when looking for a kit online was the lack of a complete Shimano kit..they sell a funnel, other bits, but I just wanted a one-stop shop for the whole deal. I do think that the funnel provides an easy clean up vs. the syringe for the lever reservoir b/c of the stopper..with the syringe, you have to use the other syringe to suck out the remaining fluid..not sure but this kit add the funnel seems to be one way to improve it.

Easy, money saver, obvious choice

Received it quickly even though I was ordering from abroad. It was my first experience with hydraulic brakes and the instructions were easy to follow (basically the instructions from the shimano manual but laid out better). Process went fine and so much cheaper than the shimano own alternatives! Also got some mini spanners for loosening the ports and quick connectors which were good quality and worked great.

Instructions are very clear. Equipment supplied is top notch quality. I was able to bleed both front and rear twice such was the amount of fluid supplied. The only thing i will say is to make sure the tube connected to the caliper is primed with fluid before commencing the bleed

Easy to use

My Bizango had started to feel a bit weak in the stopping department. I'd cleaned my pads but still the power had decreased. I looked into trying to bleed the brakes and possible put new fluid in. I got the right kit and had got to work in my garage. I had some old mineral from Halfords which was fine to use so I didn't need to break into the fluid provided (I'll probably do a complete fluid change at some point so I'm now covered for that). The syringe is easy to attach to the lever reservoir, easy to fill and then I just burped the system. I found tipping the bike from left to right, 60°ish each side, helped to get the air out of the system. My brakes are now back to factory power. If you have even the most basic of spannering skills, you'll be able to sort your brakes out.

First Shimano oil change was successful

The kit included everything what is needed. The key to loose the bleed nibble is needed, I modified one from some old furniture key. The tube holder did not snap over the bleed port, what I was expecting. Maybe it was not the purpose, instead the tube holder is just for for holding the tube. The guide had some words and sentences maybe bit difficult to understand for person not using English as mother language. But with the guide and youtube videos I was able to do it. Maybe bit more oil could be nice, because my rear brake oil was so worn I had to flush the system twice and the there was not enough oil left for front. However great kit to do the oil change.

I purchased the Epic bleed Kit to attempt my first bleed of my bicycles brakes. I did the Mini Bleed and it was easy and definitely improved my brakes. I preferred the online instructions to the ones provided with the Kit. Havnt tried a full bleed as yet but as an amateur mechanic I am pleased with it so far.

Great System

Great system, allows for a quick, easy, mess-free bleed. Dual syringes also let you cycle the fluid in the system to remove any bubbles that might normally get trapped in the end of the lever. 9.5/10, only improvement woul dbe the addition of metal fittings. Great product.

Makes it so easy, even I didn't mess it up.

A couple of read throughs of the instructions before I started and the whole process was a cinch and once you've done it once, the second time is even easier. No mess or spilt fluid, just a quick wipe of the lever body and it was all done. Would definitely buy again for the brakes on my new build.

Ordered the bleed kit for Shimano brakes, but when I recieved the confirmation email I realized the auto shipping address was wrong, they team here was super helpful and got everything straight before shipping. Once I recieved the kit it was very easy to follow the guides on their site for any procedure and the screw in syringe made it a breeze. Thanks Epic Bleed Solutions!

Easy bleeding!

No shops in my area had time for a bleed so I had no choice but to do it myself. I'd never done it before so I was a bit nervous but I took it slow, carefully followed the provided instructions and, once I got the hang of it, it was no big deal. This kit worked great and had exactly what I needed.

Player701 Rating: 5/5 5 / 5 28th June 2017
Worth buying

Bought this along with a pair of Shimano brakes since I had to shorten the hoses and the bleeding process could have been required after that. I ended up having to do a "5 minute mini bleed" on the rear brake after accidentally spilling some brake fluid when cutting the hose. The brake seemed to work OK after that. Haven't done the full bleed process yet, but I'm sure there won't be any problems because this website has a well written and illustrated guide, and there is also a copy of it included in the bleed kit itself.

Paul Rating: 4/5 4 / 5 28th June 2017
Does the job nicely

Had no issues once I actually read the instructions :-) although my bleed port was controlled slightly differently from those in the instructions being opened with an allen key and not a spanner (that took a bit of figuring out). Apart from that the process was quick and straightforward with everything working straight out of the packet. Turns out I needed the bleed as the old fluid came out black, yeuch!

Simples

Shimano SLX Brakes were well overdue some love. I consider myself to be reasonably competent when it comes to servicing my bike, but I'm no bike mechanic. When it came to doing the work I followed the instructions and found the process to be straight forward and quite user friendly. I'd recommend watching videos (I found the ones from GMBN very good) and to read the instructions a few times carefully first, and then give it a go. I'm now confident I'll be bleeding my own brakes from now on. Cheers

Everything I need, just not quite enough oil!

Well priced, complete bleed kit. I.e. everything you need to perform the brake bleed. Simple enough to do when done alongside YouTube videos. The instructions provided in writing were not the easiest to follow. Only enough mineral oil to do 2 bleeds, some if one brake needs a couple of bleeds (as one of mine did) you haven't got anything left for the other. Could have done with a cup/plug rather than another syringe for collecting/removing the old oil. 4/5 stars, I would buy again. My niggles are minor, and probably because it was my first time ever doing a bleed I didn't know any better in advance. I would buy from Epic again though! Make sure you get a brake block! I forgot!

Couldn't Be Better

I used this kit to bleed both of my Shimano M395 brakes, and it was a nice, straightforward job from start to finish, thanks to the very clear instructions. The kit was delivered quickly, and contained everything that I needed ( except for a hex wrench, which I already had anyway). The included bottle of oil was easily enough to do both brakes, and they are now working like new again.

not compible with BR-RS785 calipers

Description says "Compatible with all Shimano brakes, including road discs". This is not true, BR-RS785 calipers have a recesseed bleed nipple that make the black tube securing tool included in this kit useless. i found that without the tube being secured to the caliper bleed nipple ie just by pushing the tube over the nipple made pushing fluid though the caliper impossible. I contacted Epic Bleed about this months ago and they said they would add a new tool to the kit for the BR-RS785 calipers but i keep looking out for this and it hasn't happened and epic bleed still claim "Compatible with all Shimano brakes, including road discs" which it isn't

Good not great

Simple piece of kit, but one major flaw, the catchment syringe cannot be plugged once full after a successful bleed, which makes an oily mess once you dettach the syringe. The original shimano kit comes with a valve to stop this happening. Kudos for E.B.S. for offering a lower price for what effectively are bits of plastic and rubber worth less than a pound or dollar.

Easy to use, but didn't work for me

The instructions were clear and all the parts were easy to use. However, my bleed did not work as the instructions suggested - on both the first and second bleeds at step 12 "The normal condition is for the brake lever to be stiff at this point. " my lever remained obstinately squishy - all the way to the lever. Following the bleed they work, but not as well as they first did. The instructions are missing what to do with the bite point / free stroke adjusters (even if it is just stating that they are irrelevant).

Excellent value for money

Simple to use and a bargain compared with Shimano or other kits. Having previously had cable discs hydraulic disc were a bit of a mystery, not helped by dire warnings about not pressing the leavers with the wheel out otherwise you are doomed! Anyway all went smoothly an dit is a godsend when you pack your bike away for travelling as there is a risk that the brake will need bleeding and with this little kit its a piece of cake. Well done! AND finally if you have hydraulic brakes buy one.

Bleed went well with no issues, clear instructions and the kit worked well.

Instructions, instructions, instructions......

I really do think the instructions should be reviewed. I found them singularly unhelpful. The kit, as such, fine but I am not sure that I have done the job properly. The re-introduction of 'contaminated' oil cannot be good. I'd expected the new oil in at top, with a drawdown of clean oil, flushing system through to the bottom.

Damn good bleed kit

Having never bled a set of mountain bike discs I did the usual and googled the hell out of it and ended up ordering from epic based on other reviews. Glad I did. Instructions were simple and easy to follow and the process was remarkably straight forward. Good quality bleed kit arrived quickly and I had them bled in a matter of minutes. Instantly restored the feel of my brakes! Over time I hadn't noticed the gradual degradation of performance and it was only after the bleed I realised how much performance I had lost. Great product, great price and for something as important as your brakes it's an essential bit of kit. I was using the shimano kit running XT M785 brakes with 203 front & 180 rear rotor.

Much Easier than I Feared

Honestly I've put off bleeding my brakes for ages because I was scared of the process. I'm not sure why but while i was happy to shorten brake hoses, change headset cups, and change bottom brackets somehow i had a block with this job. When my brake performance reached the level of literally no stopping whatsoever I ordered this kit and nervously approached the job. I shouldn't have worried. The kit and instructions made the whole procedure really easy and within half an hour i had replaced the grey oil in the system with nice new pink oil for both brakes and was back to being able to stop the bike whenever i wanted. I would entirely recommend the kit and only wish I'd bought it sooner.

The first time it might look a bit complex, but once you get used to it you can quickly bleed your brakes in about 20 min. The trickiest part is to release all the remaining bubbles at the end of the process.

A good comprehensive and simple bleed kit for the home fettler. After 2 yrs of use the Shimano mineral oil in my systems was grey and sludgy so it has become a periodic service item. Great for shortening hoses and the inevitable visits from mates with 'i was just riding along' brake issues. Recommended.

Great product - simple, quick, reliable and no mess!

I always dreaded the point when the brake lever became spongy and more often than not was pulling right back to the bar. Previously I would usually end up with fluid all over the place (including the brake pads) and resort to having to take the bike to lbs to have them do it, usually with a wait. This kit (Shimano in my case) takes all the hassle out of it. There is a video and instructions on the site to go with the kit but to be honest I only follow the first 6 or so steps: syringe on the caliper, other one attached to the reservoir and then push fluid up the system. Job done in 5 minutes and no mess. Great customer service too - I recently had a clear out of the garage and accidentally threw away the tube that connects to the caliper. Emailed them to see if I could obtain just the tube thinking I would have to buy the whole kit and they put one in the post same day free of charge. If I ever change brakes I would without doubt buy another of these.

Poor brake blues

After suffering from a poor performing rear brake for some time i decided to try and bleed the brake after being told it may be needing done.

I proceeded to bleed the brake by topping up the master cylinder and pumping the lever to attempt expelling air. Not much of an improvement to be honest and a bit messy also.

I purchased a Shimano Bleed Kit and followed the instructions which was very easy and did not take much time at all, and to top it all there is no mess of fluid. After the bleed was completed i tried the brake which felt superb but was not as effective as i had hoped, this was down to me not removing the pads in the first attempt of bleeding which caused fluid to contaminate the pads. New pads in and the brake is performing spot on.

The kit is a must for carrying out any fluid bleeding or changing, quick easy and clean.

ahmed Rating: 3/5 3 / 5 27th September 2016
works fine, some inconveniences though

-Overall works fine, instructions are reasonably easy to follow. However..

-oil provided is way too little to perform a full bleed of both brakes. (well maybe it will be barely enough if you're very experienced with bleeding and/or the condition of your brakes are not that bad to begin with). I had to buy another bottle of oil separately.

-Instructions are provided for a funnel type container at the level end, but a syringe is provided in the kit. It's not clear if I should use this syringe to draw the air out of the oil or just leave it untouched and push the oil with the other syringe.

- It says on the syringe one use only. but I was under the impression that this kit is reusable. In any case I'm not buying a new kit every time I bleed and I just clean the kit and reuse it.

Really good once you know what you are doing

The kit worked well, I didn't have chance to check the online videos and it turned out my brakes differed slightly to those on the paper instruction - bleed nipple was loosened by an allen key rather than a ring spanner. Also followed the instructions to remove the disc and pads and replace with some wood. Unfortunately the wood was too soft and compressed causing the breaks to over fill - would be useful it the bleed block was provided rather than a separate purchase. Re-did a second time (let to much air in when trying to drain some fluid), this time very quick to do but left the disc and pads in place but took care to not get any fluid on the pads - this work much better and didn't over fill.

First suggestion. Take your time and read the instructions! I know how to bleed brakes, done it on cars and motorbikes. This, however is slightly different and I am glad I took my time, read the instructions and double-checked what I was doing.

The kit had all I needed and the instructions were not too complicated. I gave myself plenty of time so as to not put pressure on myself. The net result, the process worked well, I had no dramas, I used a bit too much mineral oil but no other issues and the brakes work brilliantly.

I now feel more confident in doing this in future. R.T.F.M = Read The F... Manual

I bought this set (together with the hose-cutter) to shorten hoses of my new Shimano XT brakes and bleed afterwards - never did that before (my first MTB, I normally ride road bikes) so I was scared of this (normal cable brakes are simple to install and cut). But thanks to the instructions and the kit, it was a very easy task! Approx. 30 minutes and everything was finished, no spills anywhere. Thanks!

I bought this bleed kit partly for the price and partly for the good reviews and simple instructions. I had never dealt with brakes at this level of maintenance before, but i had to cut my hose and reconnect so i needed to get the kit. So after reading the instructions twice, to be sure of the method i set about bleeding my brake line, and about 20 mins later (taking my time), i now had my rear brake working as it should.

I am now a qualified brake bleeder ;-)

Another 5 star review

At this point there's 204 reviews and almost all of them are 5 stars, so adding my 2 cents is a splash in the ocean. But I'm going to anyway because this is such a useful and well-thought-out kit. For my Ultegra disc it was just a case of attaching the syringe and hose to the bleed port in the calliper, screwing the other syringe into the top of the reservoir, pouring in some fluid and pumping out the old using the brake lever. Takes just a few minutes per calliper and creates hardly any mess. Excellent stuff.

What a breeze!

So I dusted off my old 2003 Kona Roast last weekend and discovered the Hayes HFX-9s where totally shot with sitting for years. I purchased a set of Shimano M615 front and rear to replace the old brakes.

Upon fitting I discovered I needed to bleed the brakes and shorten the lines. I stumbled across this site and ordered the bleed kit. I was a bit sceptical at how easy it was going to be to bleed the brakes as 12 years ago you couldn't find these kind of kits and tips and tricks for bleeding brakes which made things a lot more difficult. Even a few bike shops I asked back then if they could bleed brakes wouldn't do it!

Fast forward to today... Received my bleed kit in the post and it was a total breeze to shorten the lines and bleed the brakes! If there is anyone reading this who has been away from mountain biking for a long while like me and dreading the thought of bleeding brakes this is the place to come for the correct tools and guides.

I put off using kit for a while worrying I was going to make things worse. I then thought sod it what's the worse that could happen. I found the kit and instructions easy to use and follow and would recommend this kit to anyone with shimano brakes.

My brakes were better after the bleed but I don't think I pumped the lever enough so will do them again soon. I was surprised how dirty the fluid was as I haven't had them that long so I flushed through a few times which was the most fiddly bit having to release bottom bleed nipple multiple times. On the whole easier than I thought.

I encountered two tricky areas Step 4 connecting the tube to the caliper without the tube filling with air then waiting for the air bubble to rise up into the syringe which it was reluctant to do and Step 10 removing the other syringe from the reservoir - make sure you quickly seal the syringe to stop the remaining liquid from dribbling out.

I've had the bleed kit 5 or 6 weeks but being slightly nervous of the process I had waited until I had a whole day at my disposal to hopefully rectify any potential disaster.

I need not have worried. I read every step 3 times - even after memorizing the procedure - just to make sure, and all went swimmingly. The piece of plastic that is supposed to hold the syringe tube onto the calliper bleed nipple I found useless for my new XT m785's. Better to support the weight of the syringe with an elastic band around the fork. A great piece of kit, reasonably priced and a very helpful website. As with everything, experience is a great teacher and I will be both faster and more confident next time. I'm wondering how often brakes should be bled. I suppose the answer is when they feel spongy. Anyway, thank you and full marks for your psychic ability.

I found the process to be a pain in the arse which, ultimately, didn't work. I fully expect that it was my fault, as the kit seems easy enough to use.

I had never bled my brakes before but found this kit and the Epic bled guides to be very easy to use and follow. I have now bled 2 sets of brakes and they are working as good as new. I also found the guide on shortening hoses very useful so many thanks for the great service and advice from Alex!

Did the 5 minute bleed as per your instructions. All went well. Have now got improved rear wheel braking. I now feel more confident to tackle the job again. Just at the moment waiting for the Shimano bleed block to arrive before I do a full bleed. All in all very pleased with the outcome. Thanks

Great kit, all you need to get things back to factory...or better!

Bought this when I had a dumb moment and cut the new hose on my saint's too short...new hose, a full fill and bleed later and I'm off to the lakes, great stuff. Good quality and all you need to start from scratch or just flush out the old rubbish. Great service from epic and simple payment/delivery.

New brakes?

I fitted brand new SLX using the Epic how to shorten hoses guide. Then did the Shimano 5 min mini bleed. These guides are good and work to an extent but afterwards was still not convinced so bleed both brakes - loads of bubbles came out. Mini bleed works for lever end but you just do not know how well brakes were bleed in the factory and how much air is at caliper end.

You have spent good cash on good brakes, more money on a bleed kit - my advise is give your new brakes a proper bleed to begin with - you will not regret it.

The full bleed is very easy as per instructions, the only tricky bit if you have removed caliper from mount (back brake to get caliper lower than lever if not using a stand) is holding caliper and tube whilst applying pressure on syringe to keep air out of tube when connecting to bleed nipple. Best to get a helping pair of hands or fir BEFORE removing from mount!

Does the business - careful with tightening the syringe on to the reservoir

I used the website guidance for shortening the hydraulic hose on new shimano brakes. It worked fine on the front brake which didn't need any further bleeding. But I bought the Epic bleed kit in advance just in case there was a problem.... Good job I did, because the rear brake shortened OK but the lever feel was too soft (squidgy). I used the bleed kit to remove the air from the reservoir I had introduced by shortening the hose. The kit worked really well and the directions were very helpful. A couple of tips:

- move the reservoir from one side to the other (+ or - 45 degrees) lots of times. Wait for an air bubble to rise each time
- careful not to tighten the syringe down too hard onto the reservoir. You then may get a good seal but removing the syringe may be a struggle because the adaptor unscrews from the syringe luer lock

Overall a fab piece of kit

Essential Kit

Bleed kits. Often overlooked....until your lever comes back to the bar and your brakes don't work. For what is a simple kit, OEM manufacturers charge frankly ridiculous prices for their equipment. Epic Bleed Solutions make equipment that is at least on a par with OEM kits, and in some cases better, all at more affordable prices.

This is my second kit after switching from SRAM to Shimano. If I change in the future, I have no doubt I'll be back for another.

Decided to buy this kit looked better than the Shimano bleed tool and the old Dr Coopers kit I was used. It's really good, the syringe that screws into the brake bleed hole is brilliant as it's so long. Also the holder on the bleed nipple is really good, be nice if this some how clipped in but I've no complaints.

Do the bleed as per instructions then before removing the syringe, angle the bike / lever at every angle possible and every last bit of air will come out. Really like this kit, a better bleed and less mess, result !

Easy peasy lemon squeezy

I ordered this and it arrived withing four days to my house in France. Read the clear instructions and took some time to clean my very grubby mountain bike.

I don't have a bike workshop stand so put the front wheel up on a kitchen chair and while my wife held that steady followed the instructions step by step. And voila simple and straightforward. We were doing the rear brake and I had also replaced the rear brake pads. The result is a rear wheel that I can lock up with no problem. Easy!

For brakes with bite use one of these kits, you cannot go wrong.

Brought this kit to try and bleed my new deore brakes, the kit was easy to use and the instructions were easy enough to follow with pictorial step by step guide. There was enough oil to bleed front and back brake, but would recommend that you get more. This is only due to the amount of rubbish/contamination that was flushed out of what i presumed to be clean oil in my pipes.

great bit of kit

As it says in the title, it's a great bit of kit, simple and easy to use, hardest part is catching the left over collection, ive had to do my back brake twice, mainly because i thought (like every man does) "oh yeah, nice and simple i will push fluid up the system till no bubbles left and lock it off then suck out the left over fluid till just a little left in the catch bit" it worked went for a ride went spongy i was annoyed so i broke the instructions out and followed them and not had an issue since. Why cant i just read instructions like i get told to?

Great stuff

Very easy to use. However I wish the next version will have tube clamps like the Avid's to ensure the plunger won't creep back and drawing little air bubble when you are attaching the hose to the caliper bleed nipple (otherwise you need to put a constant little pressure on the plunger when attaching - a tricky and sometime sloppy maneuver as excess oil will drip).

Great buying experience, I was surprised to receive the package half world from UK in less than a week thru regular post service.

Great kit

The kit was deliveried in quick time and came with all the bits needed to bleed both calipers. They are now good as factory setup. Only thing i can have a gripe at is to supply a seal cap with the reservoir filler to prevent the old fluid from leaking out when you disconnect the screw, you do get a second syringe puller but this is difficult to push on as you are fighting both air and old oil. Overall i cant fault the kit.

contents brill, instructions could be bettet

I have used this to bleed second gen Saint M810s. The contents allowed me to experiment with different bleed techniques until I got the best bleed. The instructions sent me down a rather more complex method than I the technique I settled on; requiring an additional pot to capture excess fluid, and some tape to hold the pot beneath the reservoir. To be honest, this is a real faff. So, I used one syringe to feed oil into the res and used the supplied second rubber tube to feed excess oil from the caliper back into the oil jar. This left no mesd at all, led to a better bleed and needed fewer 'extras'. The obvious downside to this technique is that old oil is mixed with new, but mine was running clean enough which allowed me to repeat the procedure a number of times to sort out a pair of pretty bad brakes.

Excellent kit for painless bleeding

Yesterday, I got the kit in the mail and today I did my first bleed. Thanks to the great instructions it went really well. With the front brake I carefully read the instructions while doing it. Then I kney how to do it properly and so the rear brake bleeding was a piece of cake.

I have both kits now... Avid and Shimano, the kits contain everything you need to fill/bleed the brakes. I used the Shimano kit to fill a brand new pair of Deore brakes... absolute doddle... worked first time on both brakes... just be sure to give the lever a good firm squeeze when getting the last bubble out of the lever.

I used to dread bleeding brakes, the Avids are still a bit of a pain but these kits make it so much easier.

Shimano Mineral Oil Brake Bleed Kit

If your looking to bleed a new (or old) set of brakes Epic Bleed Solutions really are great. & their Shimano bleed kit is, put simply - epic!

I had recently bought a cracking deal for my family/hack bike with a pair of SLX 160's front & rear. Knocked the lever over when shortening the last one & that was that! Quick online search & after surfing for a good bit I dropped onto Epic Bleed Solutions. 5 minutes after that I registered & bought the only comprehensive kit on the market.

Guide online is awesome & once my kit arrived - less than 48hours after placing my order - it took me about 5 minutes to bleed the brake through!

It really does make life easier with this kit! No messing about with the old-style cup spilling fluid etc.

Only tools you'll really need are the kit, usual Allen key suspects & a 7mm spanner.

Block for the caliper and before you know it your brake is sweet.

I've bled many Hope brakes and consider them probably the easiest on the market to bleed. This bleed kit for Shimano brakes makes it equally as simple!

Avids - even with their kit are just a pain in the hoop and there's no comparison to this kit.

Very happy - will defo be back again ;)

Excellent kit

I bought some XT brakes to replace the Avids I had on my bike. I followed the instructions on this site on how to cut the hoses to size without needing a bleed. But I obviously did something wrong (as I am prone to do at times), and was very glad I had the foresight to order this bleed kit at the same time as the hose cutters and 7mm spanner.

The kit performed flawlessly, I had no problem getting a good bleed (something which was a bit of a unicorn on the Avids). Brakes have not lost any performance since the bleed and if I'm not careful, threaten to put me over the bars.

Highly recommended.

Worked well, but a couple of niggles.

The bleed kit worked very well. I was impressed that the bleed tube showed no tendency to slip off the nipple, even when it was oily. Overall I was very pleased with it, and bleeding was easy to accomplish.

However - a couple of niggles. It wasn't clear to me how much fluid I would need to bleed two brakes, and if the kit allowed for that. Also, I had to bleed both brakes twice, although I feel I followed the instructions to the letter. So - it was a good job that I bought extra fluid - that supplied with the kit is good for two bleeding operations, but no more.

Good, but...

The good about the kit is that it resolves the issue of securing a tube to the top resevoir by using a Luer-lock plastic adapter.

The bad about the kit is that it does not resolve the issue of securely attaching a tube to the caliper. Here, the oil tube is simply pressed over the Shimano screw. As a result, the tube tends to detach (particularly when the syringe piston is being pushed down), which typically provokes a horrible mess of mineral oil sprinkled all over. Epic Solutions obviously realizes that, and advises to recruit a helper who keeps the tube attached to the caliper. But that is not incredibly useful if no such helper is at hand.

It is really a pity that Shimano does not provide a more service-friendly solution to the caliper-side refill, but Epic Bleed does not attempt to correct that either. I could imagine that the Shimano bleed screw on the caliper could be e.g. replaced with a design that allows for screwing a threaded Luer-lock type adapter, and that might solve the issue. Unfortunately, we will have to wait for that to happen.

Fantastic solution!

Used the bleed kit for 2012-on this morning, did it in 2 hours going carefully. Definitely beats taking your bike to a shop or the official stuff, both of which are more expensive too.

One trick I found is to pre-fill the lever syringe with around 10ml of fluid, then draw back through the caliper syringe before your start going the other way. Helps to pull any caliper air bubbles or ones that have formed at the connection out and into your big syringe reservoir before you start pushing fluid up and burying them deeper.

Fantastic product, made the whole process a doddle.

Brake fluid everywhere

I followed the instructions which were for the most part clearly written, except for one slightly ambiguous part and bled my brakes.

Unfortunately, while I was concentrating on not letting the tubing come off the bleed nipple (which it really wanted to do), the brake fluid somehow suddenly spurted from where the tubing connects to the syringe, getting all over the place, but luckily not on any braking surfaces. The tubing was still completely connected, but the seal mustn't have been perfect. The fluid must have completed the seal, because the rest of the bleeding went off without incident. My brakes are bled anyway, and it seems to have done the job.

In summary, a useful kit, but make sure you have help, or else use a lot of sticky tape to temporarily secure things, as using this kit to bleed your brakes is definitely a two person job.

Great product and customer service

Contains everything needed to bleed a Shimano brake including instructions which were easy to follow.

Also found the customer service to be excellent when my order got lost in the mail, they were very quick to send a replacement and incredibly prompt at answering my emails.

cheap, simple and works

Bleeding the brakes using this kit is straight forward and simple to do.

Make sure the pads are out of the caliper to prevent contamination from any oil that may drip out of the tube as you remove it from the nipple. Only down side is the need for a 7mm spanner compared to the 8mm I have on the hope. lol

Simple, quick and clean.

This kit had everything you need to do a quick and solid bleed. I shortened both hoses on my brakes and re-bled the systems in 30 mins. There was enough shimano mineral oil to do two bleeds.

Overall a well priced, easy to use bleed kit.

Does what it says on the tin.....

This worked great, and had good instructions. It would work great with the proper shimano funnel to avoid mixing old and new fluid when draining the reservoir syringe, and I think I'll add an olive around the caliper hose to help hold it on.

All you need!

Excellent bleed kit, very easy to use and you know you've got everything you need, unlike the proper shimano kit which comes in a few pieces.

You get just enough fluid for two brakes, but the instructions say if your fluid is really manly then push twice as much New fluid through, if you need to do this you'll need to order more fluid!

Could anything be improved? Free haribo is always nice!

Epic Shimano Bleed Kit

Bought as a cheaper alternative to the official system. Instructions were easy to follow and managed to bleed brake properly first time, a viable alternative to the more costly Shimano kit.
