    Stiff brake lever (sorted)

    Hi everyone,

    I've got problem with my rear brake lever, My bike hasn't been used for about a year now and when I went to get back on it a few days ago I noticed that the brake lever is really hard to squeeze, Anyone know what this could be? It's been stored indoors and as far as I know hasn't had any knocks or anything.

    The brakes are Avid Elixir 1


    Edit: Nevermind, They're actually fine, It had just been so long since I had used them that I forgot how they felt.
