Thanks for pointing out the obvious. Don't be so naive, loads of people Have run breaks on water when in a pinch. Dot fluid is corrosive so will definitely damage seals designed for mineral oils, but I've never had a definite answer on the other way round, so someone with experience would be nice. Personally I don't want to use dot fluid.I am sure no one has because mineral oil is not compatible with any SRAM brake. You have to us DOT brake fluid, no way around that. The only reason anyone would want to do that is if they wanted to destroy their brakes and buy new ones.
I'll use the other break to stop thanks. Plus I'll see them weeping oil and they be spongy as a damp sponge. It's not like we're landing rockets on a barge here...with brake systems the only answer is use what the manufacturer says to use
it is critical safety equipment. deviate and you are now in untested and unsupported config and if your brakes fail as a result, and at a critical moment...[what happens?]
just found it ?Well these guys did it and it didn't seem to go well. OP wasn't being naive with my answer just using common sense. Oh and using water in a pinch. Well moisture or water is not the same as using a completely different type of fluid. Plus the DOT brakes (not breaks by the way) are exposed to water all the time. Brake fluid is hudroscopic. That is why you should t use old brake fluid that is sitting around. It lowers the boiling point of the brake fluid and can cause brake fade. Much more of an issue for cars though.
