When I rode today at my local trail, after about 10min into my ride when I press the front brake lever, there was a stuttering feeling at the caliper/rotor area. I stopped and checked all the bolts and they were all tight. It rode like that the rest of my ride. It felt that the front wheel was stopping OK besides the stutter feel.
I placed the bike on a bike stand and checked all of the bolts again including rotor bolts and they were all tight. I took the pads (plenty of life) out and cleaned them.
Now there is no "bite" when I squeeze the lever. The front tire will roll even at full on pressed lever. The rear is fine as it would stop and lock. On a bike stand, I can crank the front wheel to turn even on full pressed lever. The lever seems fine as it does not feel mushy nor does it go all the way to the bar.
I still have the original pads in there and really has low miles on them. Could it be some air bubbles in there? I also contacted Magura to see what they have to say. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
