    Hope avid brake lever slow return rectified!

    done lots of research on web about avid brake lever slow return, mostly change this and that, grease here and there, the one close enough was bleeding, but not once but 2x or more. now brake back to normal as it is. good day to all.

    so what did you do? I find the best solution is to replace the brake with a superior Shimano model and sell the Avids to some sucker on Ebay. did I just kick the hornet's nest?
