So after my run-around with getting a proper seal at the hose/lever the other week, now this:
Last night I go on a new ride, a pretty gnarly fireroad climb and decent. Never made it to the singletrack before dark, so we came down the fireroad. Steep fireroad. The entire way down, I was stoked on how well the Juicys were hanging in there.
So tonight, I grab the rear lever and notice some sponginess. Not a surprise, as I figured the brake workout last night brought some air out of the lines and it was now collected somewhere.
I bleed (my best job yet), finish up, give the lever a good squeeze, and the caliper audibly squirts fluid all over everything. One look and you can tell it came from a piston.
So did the heat toast the piston seal? Or is it possible I did something weird during the bleed and unseated the seal?
