    Should I bleed both my brakes at the same time?

    I am taking my bike to the shop b/c my front elixer stopped working. It just pulls all the way to the handlebar. The right works fine. Is there anything wrong with having them bleed the front brake, but not the back? The back works fine, and I would like to save a little money.

    There's nothing that says you need to bleed them at the same time. If it's working that's about as much as you can expect out of a brake. It's also worth mentioning that you should be bleeding your brakes once in a while anyway, to keep them running well. You don't to bleed them at the same time, but there's probably a reason your front needs to be bled and I would recommend doing the rear should be bled at some point as well.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?
