There are so many incorrect statements in this video about the difference between mineral oil and gylcol ether that I don’t know where to start. Have these guys never heard of Viton seals?

Funny, Viton is used by nobody for brakes because it’s not compatible w/ brake fluid.

SRAM holding forth on the science of hydraulic braking? Irony? Comedy? Mockery?

As a mechanic and rider of the past 15yrs, I must question if this is an april fools joke early? SRAM should not be doing any “explainer” video on hydraulic brakes. They have had 15yrs to get it right and still can’.t Please leave the hydraulic braking explainer videos to shimano.

And Shimano could do the same for cracked levers and pistons.
