I've been riding my new sx trail the last few days with new saint brakes. So far I am liking them but I dont like how much I have to pull on the lever before the pads contact the rotor. I have bleed both the front and back a few times and am confident there is not air in the system... once the pads contact the feel is very firm. I am running alligator rotors and not shimano rotors. Compared to my avid codes it seems like the saints have more space between the pads which leads me to wonder if the saints require a thicker rotor? I measured the alligator rotors and it seems like they are 2mm thick. I did try changing the silver screw and it helped but still seemed a bit off. Any help on getting the pads to contact sooner would be greatly appreciated!
