So i put a set of Elixirs on my bike and the hoses are about 18 feet to long. lol Has anyone tried to cut down Elixir lines yet? Does the Avid bleed kit work as advertised for these brakes? Anything else i will need??
I was sent a bleed kit from SRAM/Avid a couple months ago as part of a warranty deal, and the manual goes over bleeding Elixers. I would take this to mean that the kit includes all the do-dads, thingamajiggers, and whatchamacallits to do so.
I don't know applicable this is but when I bought my Juicy's, I talked to Avid/SRAM about the length hosing. The person told me that the Juicy's were made with a few different hose lengths for the front/rear. Which explained to me why some people never had to cut the front down and some had some really long hoses. Maybe that's the same way with the Elixirs. The woman said that there was no way to tell which one you got....which seems lame to me because it wouldn't be that hard to label the boxes with the hose lengths.
