Bleed niples

Just wondering if anyone has used "speed bleed niples". Do they work ? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Speed-ble...item5d27f8db41

I have them on my bike, and it makes brake bleeding easy. I use a Mityvac as well.

Yes, I use them and they do work extremely well. It makes an already simple job that much easier. You just open the nipple a bit, pump the brake l, make sure you keep fluid in the reservoir and when bubbles are out and have good clean fluid, you are done. Easy peasy. Oh and of course you need a hose from the nipple to an appropriate receptacle.

I have since read that you need some sort of thread tape because eventually the old stuff deteriates over time ?

How often do you plan on bleeding your brakes? I purchased the sealant http://www.speedbleeder.zoovy.com/pr...T/Sealant.html that goes with the bleeders, though I still haven't had to use it.

You could just buy the lot there?
