    this is to the guys who are going to croatia, do any of you have bleed kits for maguras? i had to take off my vees because of a new frame, and the only maguras i have are from a mod. i was gonna put on some longer housing, which i have, but i dont have any oil/syringes/tubes/fittings. can any of you bring it out there? or, do any of you have some 4 bolt-to-vvee adapters?

    go to a bike shop that stocks magura shit, get a barbed fitting. Go to hardware store, get some thin pvc hose shit, like the fishtank sized stuff, go to a motorcycle shop and get some 2.5 or 5 weight motorcycle fork oil. find a syringe on the street. or chemist. there you have it, a bleed kit, and cheap. Should be like $15 total max. You only need a babed fitting for the bottom, the top you can just shove the hose in.

    Well since you're leaving tomorrow, I don't think buying one wil work, eh?

    Mike will have one, as will Kevin, I think.

    Mike for sure though. No tools for me though, only roll after roll of film!

    zee germans will have small parts. i have no oil since i run some sort of super duper secret fluid that everyone in the world knows about.

    that dihydrogen monoxide is pretty dangerous stuff, especially when certain elements are suspended in the solution. Right now, there's a HUGE dihydrogen monoxide scare in DC. The DC gov't is taking great pains to clean up public and private facilities that are experiencing a dihydrogen monoxide problem.

    I'm bringing a bleed kit, but no magura fluid. If i need to bleed i'll use some of that secret French stuff. I hear it works great.

    it's nasty shit, it kills millions of people every year, yet it's dumped into our oceans and rivers by the thousands of gigalitres every day... I'd stay away from it if I were you...
