Thanks so much for sharing this instructable! I had no clue that it could be so easy to attach <a href="http://www.pacifichose.com" rel="nofollow">hydraulic hose fittings</a>. Especially for brakes on bikes! Can you tell me where I can find more information like this for other this to attach hydraulic things?
shimano uses mineral; oil,NOT DOT BRAKE FLUID! and hope, hayes,magura, avid all use a variation of DOT Fluid Do you homework you can do major damage if you use the wrong fluid! <br>
Generally, Shimano brakes use hydraulic oil, and hayes/avid use DOT brake fluid. If you are not sure a quick google solves most problems. Great instructable friendofhumanity!
Great walkthrough! :D
Thank you kindly. <br>
