help with deore M596 hose cutting

Postby Dazbot » Tue Nov 06, 2012 23:41 pm

Hello all. I can't seem to get a straight answer on if I cut the hose on these will I need to bleed?
Found a post that suggests I could cut then just pump the handle. Anyone got these and offer help?

Thanks in advance. D

maybe. maybe not. some people can do it with out some can not. have you read the manual it give a guide how to shorten the hose and change the ends.

go buy a bleed kit.' you will need it some time.
