This puts most of the fluid in the caliper. Made of sturdier plastic than the Space Age 2. Slide any cosmetic boot, nut, and olive over the brake line, start the needle by hand, and clamp the hose in place. I hold the cut part of the hose still horizontaly so that the brake fluid cannot flow out and then I completely fill the remaining hose with brake fluid from the cut part. Though nearly twice the price of the Space Age 2. What do you think?

Given the decent number of hydraulic disc brakes that come through the Bikerumor workshop, I was excited when Jagwire sent out their consumer-oriented Space Age 2. The pin on the needle driver is actually reversible- the shavings occurred with the round pin….

The hydraaulic in the ohse has two sides: I hold the cutting-tool with one hand and with the other I hold the hose horizontaly on both sides of the tool. They might even do it cleanly and without spraying carcinogenic DOT fluid all over remember your safety glasses, kids.
As can be seen just barely to the right, the hard turning actually produced some fine brass shavings in use. The little cutter is shaped so as to be easily held in one hand while the hose is held in cutrer other.
The driver is great to have.

For me, avoiding even a couple jagire unnecessary bleeds is well worth the price of admission. I never had any issues while cutting the hose.
A few turns of the T-handle cutteg drive the needle in easily, displacing fluid as it goes.
Made of sturdier plastic than the Space Age 2. Though largely effective, enough fluid is usually lost that a brake bleed is needed. Then buy another and leave as is for the avid brakes.

I hate doing unnecessary brake bleeds. Though nearly twice the price of the Space Age 2. In this way I dont need to bleed the system at the end. Slide any cosmetic ctuter, nut, and olive over the brake line, start the needle by hand, and clamp the hyydraulic in place. I was able to flush them out of the hose by pushing on the caliper pistons attached to the far end of the hosebut nobody wants shavings in their brake system.
I hold the cut part of the hose still horizontaly so that the brake fluid cannot flow out and then I completely fill the remaining hose with brake fluid from the cut part.
Sure, anyone with a block of wood and a box cutter can trim a hydraulic line. Click through for the details…. This puts most of the fluid in the caliper. Cuttee still think that this tool is great and will still buy it.
Not trying to bash a new product, but is it wrong to do it this way? Made of relatively inexpensive plastic, the Space Age 2. I am going to switch brakes this weekend on my bike, I looking at these toys, I can see the use of a clean and neat cut… but the Needle driver… Really? This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
