Is it possible to bleed hydraulic disc brakes without buying a kit? If so, how would I go about doing it?
I have Shimano BR-M355 brakes, but the question is also applicable to other manufacturers.
What would I need to be able to bleed these brakes, and how does the end result compare? In the UK a Shimano kit is approx. £30 [Sept 2016] including brake fluid.
