    Hydrolic breaks

    So I have this Nice Vertex30, I heard the breaks on them blow though, not sure what happened, but when I first got the bike they worked well, now they hardly stop me, I ix bikes and all but these kinds of breaks are new to me, how do I refill? I see little nipples on them, do bike shops have the fluid or does anything work? like dot break fluids.

    You shouldn't use broken equipment.

    For you un-initiated, go to http://www.hydrolic.es/index_en.html and learn all about 'hydrolic'. As for 'break' - it's what you do with coffee.

    I think everyone is knocking your spelling of "Hydraulic Brakes". I don't know about that particular brand but, some require special shop tools to bleed and make repairs to.

    Try to do a Google search on what ever brand brakes you have and see what turns up
