    Problem with Avid Juicy reach adjustment screw

    Hi all, the reach adjustment hex screw on my Juicy 3 (same as 5) front brake lever keeps moving, I adjust the reach for my hands and after a few miles the screw moves and the lever moves away from the handlebars. Has anybody had this happen before? What can I do to prevent the screw from moving, use thick grease, maybe blu loctite? Thanks

    You can wrap some teflon tape around the threads.

    If you use blue loc-tite, apply with a q-tip. Be very very careful not to get the thread locker anywhere else. I made that mistake once... spent quite a bit of time trying to get it all out so that the lever would work again.

    Yeah I was weary of using loctite, thanks for the tip
