Hydraulic Brake Maintenance
#1
Ok guys/girls, I'm new on the forum and have been looking for this information but can't find it. I just got a new bike and I'm so excited to ride again. I got the upgraded version with hydraulic breaks over the mechanical because I felt they were a lot smoother then the others I tried. I asked the bike shop what kind of maintenance I should do on them and all they said was, "nothing it's a 3 person job, you'll have to bring it in." I don't really believe that so I thought I'd come on here and ask if anyone could tell me what the basic maintenance on them would be. I hope Alex can post a video on this at some point (hence my email bro).
Anyway, I've only had the bike for a few days so far so I don't have any problems yet but I thought I'd ask for a heads up.
Thanks!
