I got my new '09 Cannondale f4 2 days ago and after the first ride the brakes (Juicy 3's) felt spongy and the front felt weak.
I figured they had not had a good bleed at the factory. I considerd taking them back to the LBS where I got the bike but decided I needed to know how to bleed the brakes so purchased Avids kit. ( I have never bled before)
First issue was none of the pad blocks fitted in the space left when I removed the pads. I got one to just about fit (although not very well)
First bleed done I rode the bike and didn't think it had worked very well so went for a second bleed.
As I was bleeding the lever loads of air rushed in as the dot fluid flowed out of the caliper!
The right side piston had shifted all the way over into the pad space when I removed the piston spacer.
I'm going back to the LBS tomorrow to get it sorted.
1) Do you think I can claim my 'free service' to get it fixed?
2) Is it going to be expensive?
Thanks in advance.
