Firstly, it goes without saying that you should NOT try and do this at home! However, Seth of Seth’s Bike Hacks fame decided to give it a go and we find out how it all went after 12 months…

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…
