Hydraulic break leaked
#1

Hi!
I didnt' know that it is a NO NO to turn a bike with hydraulic break upside down. After I did it, I would say quite a few amount of liquid leaked from rear hydraulic break. Having a bike service now is not an option. Is there any way I could fix it by myself? I am rookie in this, but quite handy.

Hello, DIYWoman!

"Turning it upside down doesn't do that. I turn mine upside down often with no problem. Some riders store their bikes upside down. Some bolts are loose and maybe an o-ring is worn and needs replacing. I'm afraid you'll need a complete brake bleed."
