You can have both you know.

Its not a choice of 1 or the other.

Thanks for clarifying that for me.

Hi,

Do you have to bleed the front brake system after replacing the reservoir?

Thanks G

no, just keep the pipe vertical and squeeze out any air once the new reservoir is attached.

Depends how much your life means to you. I would bleed my brakes if I changed the reservoir. False economy not to.
