    Bleeding rear brake on Riot

    Looking to save some time bleeding my rear brake.

    Bled many brakes but first time on rear suspension. I like to remove rear caliper and hang vertically so do I need to remove rear shock bolt in order to snake caliper through triangle and towards front of bike?

    Any help is appreciated.

    I put the bike in a stand with the front wheel up in the air. Remove the front shock bolt and cut the zips, rotate the lever on the handle bars so its at around 90. This gives me the best bleed. A quick bleed is almost as good since the hose is short. By doing the same thin in the stand but just remove the rear wheel (so no oil gets on the rotor? And bleed the caliper still on the bike.
