So I've just installed my first hydraulic disc brake. It seems to work ok. But I forgot to put the connector inserts in the ends of the hoses. So the olives in my cross-top lever are tightening on a plastic hose with no metal insert. Inserts were already installed in the ends I put into the brake caliper and STI lever.
I'm going to ride it and see if it goes spongy, then bleed and do it properly if needed. Think that's dangerous?
yes, the olive is missing the insert to get crushed around.
