    So if I order some XTR brakes from bike-discount.de will they come with the levers the right way round or will I need to remove them, swap ’em round and (obviously) bleed?

    probably wrong way round but you can often get away without a bleed. You’re likely to need to shorten hoses a bit in any event?


    Got my Slx brakes from Rose, got the hoses swapped and shortened at the weekend. No bleed required.. Simples.


    They’ll come rear brake right…. I received a pair of saints not so long ago.

    You’ll need to trim hoses anyway, can be done no bother without a bleed!


    Why not just bleed them anyway whilst you’re doing it?
    It doesn’t make much sense to me to not do it, it’s simple enough

    Ok. Cheers. A bleed won’t be a problem. I’m swapping from Magura so have plenty of LHM fluid knocking about.

    I was just wondering…. In the past I’ve not had to shorten a rear as the hose was about right (though I’ve not had the tape measure out yet for this setup).
