I'm relatively new to discs. I have Avid Juicy 3's. The pad separator springs seem to be the weak link in this system. I lost one while inspecting front pads that were rubbing. It cost me $20 for a new set of pads, just to get that spring. Then the rear spring disintegrated after an encounter with some loose sticks.
My LBS didn't have the pads I needed, so I drove to another shop and they were closed for the day.
Can I ride safely without the spring? I have a ride tomorrow and need to decide between my primary bike and a spare HT that doesn't fit me well and needs some work.
