I'm a long time lurker and user of the classifieds, but have an issue that hopefully the experts can help me solve. I just bought a pair of Hope Evo Race X2 brakes and got them installed last night. I'm having a bit of trouble with the rear lever. Straight out of the box the lever felt a little squishy, and slow to return. The front lever spings back with a nice solid "pop" but the rear is very slow to return.
I have dealt with this issue on the mini before but the issue was usually that I tightened the lever pivot bolt too much and could fix it by loosening the bolt a tad.
With the new design of the lever, there is no bolt, only the brass barrel and circlip that the lever pivots on.
I have ruled out the possibly of this being an internal issue, as I took the "dome head screw" out of the brass barrel, rotated things a bit and the lever snapped back. As soon as I put everything back together, the lever was sluggish again.
Anyone dealt with this before?
