Does anybody know if this will work, all theories welcome!
Hope is Dot fluid,shimano is mineral-you dont want to mix the two.Hope used to do mineral compatible seals for mini’s-dunno about tech stuff.
And then there’s all the leverage ratios and stuff. You might end up with a rock solid lever or a really mushy feel.
I’d just not bother even thinking about it if I were you!
I’d forgotten about the fluid, I think I’ll email Hope, see what they say about the seals, cheers. I thought it might be easy, seems not, easier to type indoors than faff for hours in the garage!
It might work for a time. But the feel / power may be rubbish and then the seals will probably rot at one end at some point depending what fluid you use. How about a 50/50 mix for Dot4 and mineral to be safe?
This also begs the question “WHY?”
WHY? to paraphrase a well known saying “because there here” I was wondering if they would go together, seems they go together like Shearer and Ashley. An unholy alliance!
Not worth the hassle. No gains that I can see. Pointless. 🙂
Good call PP, the man from Hope he say “no”, can’t get mineral specific seals for Tech 2, many thanks to all who replied.
Sensible man! You gotta think about these things though, right? 🙂
