Speed Bleeders?

Have any of you racers tried Goodridge Speed Bleeders? A WERA/CMRA guy from the north east was telling me about them; he had good luck.

What has been your experience?

They're OK, I don't spend my money on them though because I have yet to have to bleed brakes in a hurry.

I think the good 'ol zirc fittings work just fine IMHO.

i recently ordered them from cycle gear and waited 2 weeks to get them. Then when I finally got them....they didnt work much better than normal ole' stock bleeders. I still had to crack the bleeders open and back close to REALLY get all the air out....so in my book...Im never buyin them again...for teh bike at least.

IMHO it is a waste of money. It is just something else to fail in the system. Unless your pushed for time there is no need for them. I've heard of some people that have had them leak air into the line.

If you are going to spend money on anything, get a pneumatic bleeder that you can hook up to an air tank, that makes REALLY quick work of changing fluid and getting a perfect bleed.

Have to say, I'm a little surprised at the reaction. I got hooked on speed bleeders when I was racing cars. They made it easy to bleed the brakes by myself, which I did after each day at the track, and sometimes after each session, if I got some fade. On the bike, of course, it's not that hard to bleed the brakes by yourself, but I still use them with no issues.

Necessary? Not at all.
Handy to have? Absolutely.
