Looks pretty easy really. They come with the full bleed kit too making them even more bargaintastic.



Even more so now they have gone back up in price again ;)

Love the bike, Are you planning to ride the Avalanche this year?, a bike like that is begging for a good Downhill run.

I doubt it really, well not at the moment anyway.... I need to get used to the bike first.

Can't think where the idea for that came from...

Not fitted mine yet due to a lack of normal railed saddle, although I have managed to find a white Charge Knife. I just need to wait for him to job it in the post.

Looks good on there. Was it easy enough to install?

Very simple mate, still need to shorten the hose a bit, but its all on and working. It's a bit sticky at the minute, but I guess that's down to it being new out the box. I'm hoping it'll bed in with a couple of rides.

I love the saint stuff mate, its just so sturdy. It's not the lightest, but then neither am I so I'm not too fussed on weight.

Looking forward to giving it a decent DH thrash when I get the chance.

Solved the "sticky" issue, after reading another forum it was pretty obvious really! Seat clamp was too tight. I've now loosened it and just 'nipped' it up and the post is as smooth as anything! Just a hint before you fit yours mindmap3.
