    Hydraulic brakes?

    I was wondering - I am going to be ordering, hopefully, the 29er Pro SL in the next couple of weeks. When delivered, do I need to fill the brakes with fluid and bleed them? Or does it come with the brakes basically setup with fluid installed? What about a shock pump for the reba? do i need a 'special' pump? I have a floor pump that goes up to 200psi.

    You should not need to do anything to the brakes. But you will need a shock pump, and it won't come with the bike. You cannot use your floor pump because it is too high volume and you would probably blow your seals out. With every fork I have seen you can't really get a floor pump on the valve. A fork/shock pump typically runs around $20 and is an essential tool for air forks/shocks.

    The brakes are supposted to be bled and ready to go, but the J7s on my Fantom DS Pro had quite a bit of air in the rear brakes. It eventually bothered me enough that I bought a bleed kit.
