    Avid Bleed Kit for CODE brakes

    I bought an Avid Bleed kit about 8 months ago and was looking into buying some CODE or CODE R 11' brakes. Does anybody out there know if the bleed kit works with these newer brake models. Also does anybody have any preference over the CODE or CODE R brake systems? Thanks

    Thanks for the reply, do you have the CODE or CODE R? How do you like them, I'm planning on upgrading my juicy 3 to those.

    I have Codes.

    The bleed kit works, but the brakes don't. I've been waiting for a replacement caliper from Avid over 45 days now. Poor design in my opinion.

    I'd get some Shimano Saint instead.

    The bleeding kit works for them also.....the only thing that matters for the kit is the size standard of the bleed port diam and threads which is the same on all Avids from J3 to CR Mags & Code R's......
