Ok, title says it all. I've bled my Martas, the shop bled them. They came to the conclusion that there is a seal on the lever area that is blown and parts are hard to come by. Been looking around and been unable to find a 'piston/lever rebuild kit'. or any soft parts for my lever. No external leakage, but no amount of bleeding gets the rear brake working.
Disgusted, I am having the shop install XT Trails (bike is a woman's small SW Safire so the lines need to be shortened and I am too frustrated to deal with it myself at this point). But I would like to get these brakes fixed if possible to use on my commuter, and if not it's no biggie I'll just get a set of SLXs. (I hope I would do better finding parts for Shimano, heck when I had Hayes on my Giant I found parts for those everywhere).
The shop mentioned that they've seen this before on the Martas, and have had trouble getting parts themselves. Anyone here had luck finding seals for Marta levers?
