    Stuck caliper

    I have a set of Juicy 3 and when I first want to go out for a ride the rear brake is stuck and the wheel won't turn a few pulls on the brake lever frees is up. What would cause this and how to fix? Thanks

    Think you have to remove your brake pads to check if you caliper pods to see if it is protruding out from the main chassis. If so, you'll have to carefully pry back the pods back to the original position. This happens when you depress the brake lever with the wheels off. ( It happened to my XT's and Saints) Also do a check on the alignment of your disc rotor to the caliper, you might wanna make sure its not rubbing against the pads. Sometime air bubbles inside the hydro tubes might also contribute to this. Might have to bleed the whole system again.
