speed bleeders are even better, and MUCH less expensive.

Setp one: Obtain 5-8 squares of clean, dry toilet paper.
Setp two: some prefer to neatly fold while others prefer the "wad" technique, but you need to condense the squares into a thicker unit of TP.

...do I really need to continue?

Zoom,

I thought about giving them a try when I ordered my lines but decided against it at the time. Didn't do much research into them but are they as easy as open the valve, pump, and tada, air-free brake lines?

whoa...thats effing awesome...there's no price tho and that website is as old as dirt! "best when viewed at 800 X 600 Resolution." LMFAO!

Is there any other place to buy them?

EDIT: I see they are being sold on ebay...$7 a piece with $5 shipping...so that'd be like $28 +$5 for shipping (I'd think he'd combine shipping otherwise it'd be like $20 in shipping charges) to take care of every bleeder....cheaper than tht vacuum thingy
