    Default Metal funnel.

    Bleeding Shimano brakes almost everyday at shop. The plastic cups are just not up to the task. I have seen these made from metal. However, my attempts to purchase have been unsuccessful. Does anyone have an alternative or suggestions? Thank you.metalfun.jpg

    Plastic cups fail all the time
    Metal wonít, but you can cross thread a lever, which is very possible with the stupid offset entry on drop bar levers.

    Iíve thought about it

    I have a dedicated flat bar cup and a drop bar cup (extension glued in)

    If you find one let me know how it works out.

    The plastic cup is a consumer piece, and in a professional environment replace it fairly regularly
