Whole Bike

Prior to going on a bike ride, you want to check your bike over to make sure it’s safe for the ride.

We use the M-check. It starts at the derailleur, up to the saddle, down to the bottom bracket, up to the handlebars, and down to the front wheel. During the M-check, it is always good to check your frame for any wear or damage.

How to Bleed Hope Brakes

How To Bleed A Hope Brake:

Before we start anything on the bleeding procedure, we need to make sure the mast cylinder is level, so now fluid will be lost from the master cylinder when removing the lid. Then, take out the T10 torx screws on the lid. Carefully remove the lid. Wipe away the excess oil and dirt.

Next, remove the rubber cap from the blade nipple to fit the spanner and bleed hose. Always rap a little tissue around this for extra protection.

Fill the master cylinder up with oil. Make sure not to overfill it. Then, we can start the bleeding procedure.
