I already had an Epic bleed kit for Shimano MTB brakes. The Funnel and adapter were required (together) to use the same kit on my road bikes - the port hole is a different size on the road brake hence the need for the adapter. Both items work well. I could have bought both on e bay for less but from overseas suppliers with long lead times and no guarantee that were actually the same. I was happy to pay the extra pound or two for reliable delivery, confidence in correct products and the ability to talk to someone if things didn’t work properly (although they did).
Easy to use. Robust and high quality.
After several Epic purchases I'm afraid this one was a disappointment. Normally the bleed tool threads into a metal insert (SRAM levers) or a metal caliper but in the case of the newer shimano levers the thread is into the polymer body. This means that if anything goes wrong using this adapter it's the lever which gets trashed . I knew as soon as I removed the blanking caps on the lever that something was wrong. The threads on the blanking cap are somehow different to the adaptor. It's not the major diameter or the pitch, but the thread angle or the minor diameter. Simply put, the adaptor simply isn't a smooth fit to the thread in the lever and it was just too risky to use this adaptor on my clients bike. Ironically the genuine shimano adaptor has the same unusual thread as the Epic version and is also an interfering fit in the lever but as the shimano adapter is made from very soft nylon/PA etc there's no risk of ruining your £300 shifter. Clearly shimano know their stuff hence why their metal blanking cap has a different thread to their cheapo adapter.
I had to purchase this adapter after realising that Shimano had altered the thread size on the master cylinder bleed screw for the later model Ultegra system. Epic we’re able to provide this metal bodied adapter which arrived promptly. Great service and products by Epic...Recommended.
