    Formula The One - Senistive to pad wear?

    I may be going mad here, but I thought it was worth throwing out there...

    Has anyone else noticed pad life massively affecting lever throw?

    I've been convinced I had air in the system on my front brake so bled it to within an inch of its life, only to still have a big throw (right back to the bar before even feeling remotely solid).

    Checked the pads, and to be fair, they are pretty worn, but by no means on their last legs, so bunged a new set in & all of a sudden it feels like a Hayes 9

    Maybe its a combination of an (now) awesome bleed & new pads, but i'm just a bit surprised by the difference.

    Yeah, I'm experiencing something similar as well...

    I got a reply for Formula's local rep (can't remember their name) about the same thing on my K18's and he said that is normal.

    I don't know it The One's have the Oro FCS on there. But, you could try messing with that if they do.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.
