    bleeding XT

    I am trying to find a clean method for bleeding my XT discs, do you do it like a car by pumping the handle and cracking the bleed screw, or is there another "better" method?

    do a search on "Syringe bleed shimano disc" and you'll get details on how to bleed

    Shimano hydraulics using a much simpler method than the Shimano instructions. You can get the syringe at the baby section at Rite Aid.

    On my 4-pot XTs I have always just used the car method and it has been fine.
