I am not an experienced disk brake person. I have just installed a new front Avid Juicy 7 Carbon system. All was fine with the provided 160mm rotor but I have just fitted a new 185mm rotor and the pads now rub. The rotor is and avid rotor and im running avid pads. It only rubs a little but it does rub. The pad wear adjustment does not fix the problem. Any ideas on how to fix it?
2nd problem. The Lever pad wear adjustment has to be set to maximum to make the brakes work. If I back it off the lever pulls all the way to the handle bar and does not full engage the pads. This is with new pads installed. Does this mean it needs more oil? can I use any oil? Will it need bleeding?
