    Ordered XXs - bled already?

    Ordered some XX brakes from SRAM, do they come ready to go or will they need to be bled?

    any chance they'll ship w/ bleed kit?

    ready to go hopefully, sometimes the factory bleed can be lacking but most times it will be just fine.

    You need to buy the bleed kit separately; shop around, the price can vary quite a bit.

    If you have a full suspension bike you will need to buy a longer cable for the rear and shorten the front, which means you will need to bleed them.

    They fit my FS bike fine, no bleed, and there was plenty of hose.

    My Elixirs (same basic brake) came with plenty of hose for a large Nomad frame, both front and rear, had to shorten each. Also my front brake needed bleeding, had some air in there, so took care of that while shortening the hoses.

    Mine came bled pretty well from the factory.

    The lines were just the right size for my bike.
