    Elixir R - Too grabby, new pads, no grab

    Hi,

    Ive always had a weird thing with this particular brake...When I first got the bike the lever didn't have a smooth feeling and the LBS guy said itll work in...I thought it was weird considering the other brake was always smooth feeling at the lever.

    So I rode it for a while but it had no modulation and it just locked up when I pulled the lever. The lever never went all the way to the bar BTW.

    I also had the brakes squealing and vibrating my frame issue...

    So I bought some new pads, and bedded them in and all seemed very well. I had modulation and the brake grabbed at the end of the stroke, and the lever still didn't ever touch the bar.

    Now, the lever goes all the way to the bar and it doesn't lock up the wheel at all.

    This is my first time with hydro's and I think it needs to be bled.

    Suggestions?

    ***Edit***

    I just noticed that there is a squish noise coming from the lever when I pull on it.
