Formula recommends bleeding 1-2 times a year if you want to properly maintain the brakes and internal seals. If you're riding more than 12 hours a week, you should think about bleeding three times a year. If you're not paying attention, you'll need to bleed when the braking feels both mushy and sluggish. The bleed kit comes with two syringes, brass bleeder port fittings, and some tubing to attach the fittings to the syringe. Brake fluid sold separately.

Anyone use the cheaper kit? It is $15 compared to $45 for the official Avid kit.:eek:
