    Avid Juicy master cylinder issue

    I have a set of Avid Juicy 5's that I installed last season and have seen light usage. I was getting very little power out of the front brake (w/ lever bottomed out) so I bled the brakes.

    The brake is firm after the bleed, but I was getting little black specs in the top syringe along with the brake fluid.

    Is one of the seal in the master cylinder coming apart? Is this a warranty issue or something that the LBS can repair? Please advise.

    I had a similar problem with my rear J5. The LBS eventually pulled it and sent it back to Avid to be rebuilt. Works fine now.
