    Are you serios? when would you need a 55 gallon drum of it? most bike shops probably buy it in smaller quantity's. and how much did it cost. it cant be cheap.

    What is the viscosity of baby lube, no problems with seals further on down the road?

    I have some sort of scented mineral oil in my HS-33. I picked it up at a drugstore. It works. Maybe the braking action isn't as snappy as using water, but it certainly isn't holding my riding back. I haven't bled it in 4 years or so.

    Andrew, I do not understand this Magura blood thing at all, Does it come in different weights/colors?
    Unfortunately my wife said no to ordering a 55 gallon jug of Magura brake blood, she took away my credit card! But not before I ordered my new Michelin 24.1/2.5 front and rear tires and Plaz pads.:bigthumb:

    You put anti-freeze in with the water to protect your seals, not to mention cold weather.

    You were exaggerating when you said 55 gallons right?...Because you will only ever need like 1/8 of a gallon for your brakes.
