You can also get this it will handle just about everything and is really a pleasure to use. It is a spendier kit but it works for a vast majority of mineral oil based brakes and has nicely machined fittings and just seems overall like it was thought out rather than some of the stuff out there which feels like an afterthought.

No question the Park kit is by far the best one I have seen to date. Every shop needs one and should have one. Addresses the short comings of the standard fare from the OEM stuff.

Thanks for the tip. Given its wide brand compatibility (i have TRP and Shimano disc brakes on my bikes). Park Tool is out of stock for this kit, but i found two somewhat local shops that appear have it in stock.

Last I checked our distributor had them and that is where I got mine. If your shop has them not a bad thing to pick one up it is a nice kit and well put together. Granted I would have preferred the whole thing to be a bit smaller box wise I understand the want to make it a little bigger to fit other things in there.
