Well I put mine and was getting ready for the first ride and then..............It started to rain for two solid days.
I don't understand all the problems people were reporting about setup, bleeding, and break in.
I cut the hose down for the back and then bled the 'pump' with an Avid bleed syringe. I put some dot4 in the syringe and screwed it in and pulled on the plunger. up came two big bubbles. I released the plunger and did it again. Up came a couple of small bubbles. I pushed down on the plunger, lightly, until I felt it stop. Then removed the syringe and put the plug in. Wipe down the pump with iso-alcohol and was done. I decided to check the front and got a small bubble out of it and than was it.
Now the wait. starring at the best looking set of brakes I have ever seen and can't do more than squeeze the lever when I walk by the bike. Speaking of that these brakes have the lightest feeling lever. Even lighter than the Hope's and the Shimano 755's that I have. I really like the short lever blade. You can move the levers in so that you just hook one finger on them. I found out later that after break in one finger is all you need.
Well time came to see how they act in public. The first few brake checks made a nice Juicy squeal. That was good for some heckling from my fellow riders. Well As I proceeded with the way I break in new breaks I felt the power start to increase and the noise went away. On the trail I did some excessive braking to help with the break in. By the end of the ride the breaks were feeling better than the 755's that I really enjoyed.
These breaks are great and they aren't even broke in yet. The only place that I could ride was the wide track around where I live, because of the rain. I can't wait to get out on the single track and see how they act.
