    marta brake line switch and bleed questions

    I just bought a set of Magura marta brakes off Ebay for cheap but the brake lines are reversed. Short hose for rear brake. The original owner must of had the brakes reversed. Anyways, I know you can shorten the hoses without bleeding, but can you switch lines without bleeding?

    If I do need to bleed can I use my Avid bleed kit and adapter? Of course I would have to buy the correct fluid.

    I only meant that he had the lever mounted so his left hand worked the rear brake.
