    Installing internal routed brake

    What is the procedure for installing pre-bled brakes on an internally routed frame? Do I need to bleed all the fluid before installation, or can I just cut hose and thread it, not worrying about any fluid coming out? I understand that I will perform a bled after installation. Thx Pete

    Guess it depends on the brake. If DOT, then I would completely drain the line. Mineral oil I might drain, depending on frame material.

    New, dry line through the frame. You will have to cut off a section of hose that includes the barb, so if you aren't sure you have extra length, that could create binding.

    At the very least, drain the line and put a turn on plastic wrap over the cut end, as you don't want any hydraulic fluids hanging out inside your frame.
