  2. Dude needs more experience. Has never failed in my 28yrs. Have had customers tell me that they have never had such a good pedal.

  3. I a well seasoned senior citizen and have used gravity bleeding for decades and it never failed for me. Solid pedals every time. Of course is you don’t do it correctly, it won’t work.
