A mechanic must have.
When your SRAM or Avid brakes just don't feel like they used to, reach for the SRAM Standard Disc Brake Bleed Kit to give your brake lines some love with a fresh pump of DOT 5:1. Critical for keeping things working well, this kit is intended for SRAM and Avid brakes, but will not be your friend on Shimano brakesets, swapping your DOT 5:1 to Mineral Oil (and vice versa) won't fare well on the trail and leads to very unhappy brakes.
Equipped with everything you need to bleed your SRAM brakes, this kit contains two bleed syringes with fitting/clamp tubes, two compression ferrules and barbed tubing inserts, four different bleed blocks, a 3/8in drive 8mm crawfoot tool, DOT 5:1 brake fluid, and the ever important instruction manual so you do the job right the first time around.

Pretty painful shelling out this much cash for this, but given what s shop charges it's a no brainer for the long term. Also annoying that SRAM made this new weird device that made the old bleed kits obsolete, but I must admit it works super well... Buy this kit, watch SRAM's youtube video (it is great and makes the process very simple and easy for anyone with basic mechanic skills), and enjoy awesome feeling brakes.

Teach A Man To Bleed His Brakes..
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bleed a man's brakes, he'll have stopping power for a bit, teach a man to bleed his brakes, he'll have stopping power forever. For the cost of bring your bike to a shop to have them bled a single time, you could pick this up and learn to do it yourself.
Literally everything you need to bleed them, its not hard to do. I'm an intermediate, self taught mechanic who has learned everything from Youtube. Super easy to do. Took me a bit when I first learned, now am able to bleed brakes for buddies and they're stoked on it too!
