    need help on avid juicy brakes.

    Hello guys I just replaced my fork yesterday and put everything back together and when I was trying to put my wheel on my brakes wont let them in. The brake pads are too close together now for some reason and wont give any space for my rotor so slip in. I'm not sure what I did but as far as I know I didn't touch the brakes anytime during my fork installation. Any ideas on how to free up some space on the pads so my rotors can slip in? The brakes are avid juicy 3 which are pretty new, only 4 rides on them.

    Just take a large, flathead screwdriver, push it in between the pads and carefully rock it back and forth to press the pads apart. Realign the caliper over the rotor and then pull the lever a couple of times to get the pistons/pads back to their working position.
