  • A little over a year ago we filled the rear hydraulic brake of my fat tire mountain bike with baby oil, instead of Shimano Brake oil. Now over a year later, we're going to tear apart the brakes and look at all the most vulnerable components under a microscope to see if they degraded or changed in any way. This video is just for entertainment, and I can't recommend that you fill your brakes with baby oil. With that said, this will always be the baby oil fat bike and it will always have baby oil in the brakes until they fail. Maybe it's time we name this bike...

    Now that this bike is permanently filled with baby oil, we need to name it!

    Meanwhile at the Shimano factory: Alright fill the baby oil container with red dye, yep that'll do it.

    "I still don't see why you need to fill babies with oil" is my forever favourite line.

    That's a lot of assumptions on engineering quality.

    I've been running pure Mineral Oil (the non-baby formula) for years now, and will say that it holds up as well as name brand brake fluid. But with 1 major caveat. If you're going down a long hill and just riding your brakes, the Mineral Oil does get spongier faster, but I've had Metallic pads loose their friction coefficient and the rotor get red hot even before the brakes became really spongey.

    For "mineral" oil brake systems: Use engine oil or (better) automatic transmission fluid ATF (Yes, it is oil). Do NOT use brake fluid in those systems. Engine oil and ATF have additives which protect against corrosion, protects gaskets and O rings and more. They also have high boiling point. Synthetic oil is fine if you have it around, but it is an overkill. Baby oil does not have those additives and I doubt if Shimano's oil have them either. BTW: Some heavy equipment use ATF in their hydraulic system.
