Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by the way to go with AVID brakes I think without this kit bleeding an AVID brake would be somewhat impossible. Using the instruction that come with I get a pretty good bleed in my X0's. Everything in the kit seems like its built to last a good while and it come with everything you need to keep it going and use it with all (i think) AVID brakes. 08 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent results The first time I used it it took around 1/2 hour to bleed my rear brake perfectly and that was with referring to the instructions all the time. No mess or oil wastage and the brakes (Elixr SL) work as well, if not better, than new. 08 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best kit I've ever bought It the best bleed kit I've ever had works perfectly every time 26 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by worth the extra cost this is very easy to use , as the syringe to reservoir joint can swivel . when the joint is rigid the job is so much harder . you can set both syringes in a upright position then push the one at the caliper end and then preasurize the handlebar end and the jobs done . 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bleed kit Without a doubt this kit is worth buying over the cheaper avid kit, very good quality with spares. Very easy to use too. 04 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Expensive but makes bleeding simple I used this to bleed my Avid Code R's. Good quality syringes and I like that it comes with spare o-rings 29 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A top piece of kit Don't buy the cheaper bleed kit, this is well worth the extra cash. I have the cheaper kit as well and it leaks a bit of air when bleeding. This kit doesn't and makes bleeding the brakes a doddle. The excellent seal on the syringes lets you pull all the air out of the system. you get loads of spares with this kit as well, such as new hose barbs, olives and caliper o rings which cost a fair bit bought separately. Top tip for bleeding-always remove the pads and put the bleed block in, set the reach adjust to half way. You get a nice progressive feel on the lever without the pads running too close to the disc. 03 September 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by don't buy it Well the kit is cool but the tube clamps do not fully close the tube, so you are not able to degass the dot fluid beforе the bleed. I was saved by the clamp from the hayes kit. Buy cheapest avid kit possible, instead of this, and bottle of DOT 5.1 fluid from any auto or motorbike parts shop nearby. 26 May 2013

I'm new to the maintenance of hydraulic disk brakes and it seems to me that the bleed blocks in this kit would serve the same purpose.
PS I understand from Park Tools that their Piston Press PP-1.2 is the one needed for Avid Elixir disc brakes and this does not appear to be stocked by CRC at present. (Nov 2013).

Answers

Answer: 
The brake blocks are for keeping the pistons separated during the bleeding procedure; where as the Piston Press is for separating them if they have been closed completely or have seized.

By using care when removing the wheel and the pads; a piston press should not be needed as the pistons will be in the correct position when the brake blocks are inserted prior to bleeding.

However if a press is required there are some suggestions below.

Answer: 
unless you've compressed the brakes with out the rotor between the pads ,then a piston press shouldnt be required . you are drawing out the fliud and then preasuring the system with new fliud . so the piston dont need to move

Answer: 
Yes, it would be best to clean the syringe and tubing after use to ensure that it is clean when used again in the future.

Answer: 
no do not rinse with water! , you will never get this compelety out of the tubes . expel all products ( as possible ) when next used you can draw in 20 mil and then expel this fliud as waste product into the same container as you will used for the product thats in the system requireing attention. if youre upgrading youre brakes at this time use the higher grade product to flush the equipment before use.

Answers

Answer: 
hi , ive just looked at a kit for rock shoxs reverb seatpost and they look very similiar .the only problem is you dont have instructions for how to do it ie where the bleed point is ,or the master clyinder (where the fluid is held when the post is fully down ) also what the fliud is . if its oil then it wont need bleeding unless its very old and if your having issues its more likely a seal has gone ,grit has worn it out . youtube may have a clip to show you how or the information may be available via the oem. good look cause it would be a shame to have to by both for the sake of five lines on a piece of paper!
the kit itself is very easy to use and well worth paying extra for the pro kit as its so much easier to use as the conection tubes can swivel unlike the cheaper ones which are fixed and a absolute pain to use . hydraulic fliud absorbs moisture from the atmosphere so brakes will need bleeding every 2 to 3 years. also if your brakes squeal then this can solve that problem.

Answer: 
Yes, it should be. However, don't use the same syringes for bleeding brakes with DOT fluid and bleeding the reverb seatpost (which needs suspension fluid of some sort) as you will contaminate both systems causing their seals to fail.

Answer: 
Afraid not; the bleed ports on the Shimano and Avid systems are a different thread size, so the Avid kit won't connect to the Shimano systems unfortunately.
