    Brake service kit help...

    Would anyone happen to have a brake service kit that can be used on Tektro disc brakes that I could borrow/rent/buy?

    Thanks.

    And yes... I know... Don't polish that Tektro turd... Buy better brakes... Buy a new bike... Got it.

    But for now... Bear with me.

    :-)

    what is wrong with your brakes? Tektro bleed kits on amazon for about $12

    https://www.amazon.com/Tektro-Mounta...ktro+bleed+kit


    The main thing you need is the threaded nipple at the end of the syringe tubing.

    It's that threaded nipple I'm looking for. Saw the Amazon kit but wanted to do something with it today or tomorrow, which is why I asked. It seems some kits come with a number of different threaded nipples for different brands of brakes. Just thought someone might have one lying around.

    REI downtown has the Tektro bleed kits, that's where I get mine. Gotta ask the guys in the shop for them though. I know one of the guys there gets on mojo so tell them who you are and you might get a discount.

    Just run down to your LBS they should have one. Oh wait, I'm sorry they won't have one but can order you one.

    Thanks, I checked a couple of shops but not REI... For some reason I just never think of REI as a bike shop.

    That was my witty sarcasm at the fact that your LBS never has the small things that you need "but can order them". We all can order our own parts thanks.

    Probably for the full cathartic release, you need to be driving the truck. Then you can truly heal

    So let me get this straight.

    You don't feel like waiting so you're asking for favors from the same group that you told to fuck off?

    if you had ordered it on Saturday, or drove down to REI, you'd have this done by now.

    I just switched out the Tektro for some Avids I had lying around. Worked fine. And now that I know REI has the kit, and I have time to head there tomorrow... I'll do that.

    And by asking a really simple question I found out something I didn't know.

    See how that works mack_turtle.
