JAGWIRE HYDRAULIC HOSE CUTTER AND NEEDLE DRIVER

I hold the cut part of the hose still horizontaly so that the brake fluid cannot flow out and then I completely fill the remaining hose with brake fluid from the cut part.

Given the decent number of hydraulic disc brakes that come through the Bikerumor workshop, I was excited when Jagwire sent out their consumer-oriented Space Age 2.

The driver is great to have.

What do you think? The pin on the needle driver is actually reversible- the shavings occurred with the round pin…. Though nearly twice the price of the Space Age 2. The insert in the needle-driver has two sides: Made of sturdier plastic than the Space Age 2. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

For me, avoiding even jagwre couple of unnecessary bleeds is well worth the price of admission. As can be seen just barely to the right, the hard turning actually produced some fine brass shavings in use. Click through for the details…. Made of relatively inexpensive plastic, the Space Age 2. jagwie

Review: Jagwire’s cool Space Age 2.0 hydraulic hose cutter and Needle Driver

Click through for the details… Sure, anyone with a block of wood and a box cutter can trim a hydraulic line. I never had any issues while cutting the hose.

Slide any cosmetic boot, nut, and olive over the brake line, start the needle by hand, and clamp the hose in place. A few turns of the T-handle will drive the needle in easily, displacing fluid as it goes. They might even do it cleanly and without spraying carcinogenic DOT fluid all over remember your safety glasses, kids. Sure, anyone with a block of wood hdraulic a box cutter can trim a hydraulic line.

Not trying to bash a new product, but is it wrong to do it this way? I hate doing unnecessary brake bleeds.

Given the decent number of hydraulic disc brakes that hydraulicc through the Bikerumor workshop, I was excited when Jagwire sent out their consumer-oriented Space Age 2. I hold the cutting-tool with one hand and with the other I hold the hose horizontaly on both sides of the tool.

I hold the cut part of the hose still horizontaly so that the brake fluid cannot flow out and then I completely fill the remaining hose with brake fluid from the cut part. In this way I dont need to bleed the system at the end.

I am going to switch brakes this weekend on my bike, I looking at these toys, I can see the use of a clean and neat cut… but the Needle driver… Really?

This puts most of the fluid in the caliper. I was able to flush them out of the hose by pushing on the caliper pistons attached to the far end of the hosebut nobody wants shavings in their brake system. Not only does it seem to be shop quality, but it solves a much bigger problem.

Then buy another and leave as is for the avid brakes. On brakes like Shimano there is no driver hole, so the torx neelde will just bite into softer metals.

The little cutter is shaped so as to be easily held in one hand while the hose is held in the other. I still think that this tool is great and will still buy it. Though largely effective, enough fluid is usually lost that a brake bleed is needed.
