Brake Bleeder Kit

Any suggestions on a good brake bleeder kit? Brand, model number, for use with one person?

Save your money and your time. Buy a friend a few beers and have them pump the brakes while you work the bleeder screw. I tried to use one of those kits and I couldn't get all of the air out. I think what happens is that when you crack the bleeder screw and apply suction to it, a bit of air gets sucked through the threads of the bleeder screw giving you the impression that you still have air in the line. So you keep sucking and sucking hoping that you got most of the air out of the line. Then you go and look at your reservoir and it's empty and now you DO have air in the line. POS!

Agreed. Put a bit of washer hose on when you bleed them and you will see the air coming in with the fluid. Once it's out tighten the bolt and away you go!
