Mineral oil for hydraulic brakes
2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Eh, I had some amateur error, when trying to fixate my disc brakes.
I openend the oil Torx screw of the Shimano brake, and then pulled the brake.
Oil flew out like when you have shits diarrhea.
Anyways, now I lost a bit of oil in my rear brake system, and I notice it, I can pull the lever all the way back and it barely breaks.
I found no clear results about what to use, because people keep on arguing anyways.
Funny enough my bike doesn't use the original mineral oil, it's yellowish and not red. The distributor who put my bike together also thought it is not necessary it seems.
What is your experience with different kind of oils for your disc brakes?
Shimano doesn't give out any data about their stuff, so it's hard to compare only by specsheet.
