bleeding

so for the front and rear brakes...do u need to have the brake bleeding little kit. the clear hose and the container to catch the old/bad fluid?

or do people just loosen the nipple/bleeder on the caliper, pump the brake lever, and have the fluid drain/drop into a big container/bowl type thing?

if i dont have to use extra tubing for bleeding the brakes i wont buy it..

You need some tubing to get the used fluid away from anything you care about. That stuff is evil. if it gets on the pads, they are done for. It also eats pain off fenders. It even eats the powdercoat off the rims.
