    Need brake help in east Mesa

    Just finished putting together my bike that I have been working on since january, several stoppages due to health problems, had to shorten the brake cables and didnt realize I needed a kit to bleed my brakes. Im in east mesa near ellsworth and brown, if someone close has the avid kit and could help me out that would be great, I cant work right now and really dont want to take family budget money for this. Thanks guys, Randy. 480 695 7401.

    So you are saying you can't bleed them normally? What does the kit have in it that you need? Special wrenches, a syringe?

    I do live right there but I dont have an Avid bleed kit. Only one I have is a Hayes and I dont even run Hayes anymore. OP if you need anything else let me know. I adjusted some shifting and trued a couple wheels yesterday for someone as a matter of fact. Will work for beer.

    Lew and Douger have both helped me out in the past, props to them for stepping up again! I have only worked on Shimano brakes, not sure if there is a difference, probably different fluid. I would suggest hitting up Walgreen's if you need syringes, they work just as well as the ones in the kits and last time I asked they gave me some for free.
