G'day all

Has anyone had any issues in regards to their hydro brakes? specifically fluid loss when
transporting the bike in the back of a wagon, or on a bus/aeroplane??

Also, if in Melbourne, peoples opinions of good bike mechanics who can competently fix
hydro brakes...

Cheers all

the mechanics at SHM Lonsdale street have the fittings and fluid to do all Shimano (and compatiable
systems Gimeca etc.) Magura, Hope, Hayes, Formula, Promax and a few others that are about. Do you
know what make of brake you have? If you have some air stuck in the line or the brake has not been
bled properly from day one the air expands in the fliud and causes a hydraulic lock.
