Replacing Hard line brake lines

Hi All,

While I was out on the trails my front brake line ruptered and that was the end of my front brakes. Sooo I will be buying and installing the preformed brake lines very soon, however I just have one question.

After installing the brake lines what do I do about the air that is in the brake cylinders and lines? Any other maintenance I need besides bleeding the air?

Thanks in advance!

Is easy enough.

Connect it up, bleed each side, make sure the reservoir stays full, pump and bleed some more, etc.

Run it a bit and bleed again (I'm too OCD about that )

Thanks! Easiest way to bleed is to pump the brakes continuously while all lines are connected? I think that is the part I am not sure about
