    Brake fluid

    Hi.

    I have Formula Oro brakes on my MTB and they use DOT-4 fluid. My question is: can I use any old DOT-4 fluid or must it be the one Formula supplies? I mean, I can get 1 litre of DOT-4 fluid at the local DIY store for like 10 bucks...

    Any DOT 4 or 5.1 brake fluid is fine. For best results when changing fluid, bleed until all the old stuff is flushed out.
