That “I got hydro brakes but X is happening and I hope someone on here can help me fix it”.
I got a set of XT Hydros new and the front one has started leaking at the caliper. Ideas? Can I fix this?
Background: I was stopped at a red light, and was pumping the front brake. On the third or fourth actuation, the dead-throw/free stroke became non-existent. Got home and bled the system, but the dead-throw was still not there. On the second bleed, the dead-throw came back, but with a leak in the caliper body somewhere. Disassembled the caliper, but the seals were completely intact.
Feeling pretty bow bow about this because I installed them last week and its gonna RAIIIIIIIIIN tomorrow, also I just want hydros that work. Soooo:
Do I send back to CRC and say yo, your shits whack
Do I take to a shop and hope I’m not out of pocket too much
Or Do I throw my bike under a tram?
