    Brake Bleed Kit

    So I need to do 2 things: 1) bleed my Avid Juicy 7s and 2) bleed the Xloc on my Sid XX. Is there a difference between an avid brake bleed kit and a Rock Shox Speed Lube Kit or can I just buy one or the other and use it for both purposes (after cleaning between uses obviously)?
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Plungers are the same, fittings have the same threading as well. The Xloc needs the shorter fittings at the remote though. SRAM may have switched all the fitting to the short version at this point, but I'm not positive. The bleed kit will come with fluid in most cases and since 2.5wt shock oil is harder to come by that DOT I'd get that kit.

    You might want to check bleedbicycles.com.

    They sell nice kits and are less expensive than the manufactures.
