Please Help Me With Hydralic Brakes

if you are running just water then yes there is a chance of the brakes freezing and because the brake doesnt have a resevior when the water expands in the hosing it CAN cause the hosing to crack. In a shed yes i would worry if my brakes were bled with water..... but in most bricked garages they should be ok - my friend complained about his brakes freezing up on late night rides...

easyiest solution is to re-bleed through with water mixed about half and half with anti freeze which lowers the freezing point of the water in your hosing.... means your brakes wont freeze and also because its about the same viscosity your lever pull and the way it reacts will be very similar to just pure water
