    Unusual hydraulic fails.

    I've recently purchased a used 9.7 superfly and it worked well for a couple of weeks but after that the hydraulic brakes failed couple of times in a weeks time. I don't understand how it happened? I've read about hydraulic pumps fail when overheating happens, read it in hydraulic systems blog, but I don't understand how it is so frequently happening in my bike? I'm just learning my lessons and yeah do some stunts once in a while, but I don't think I've overstrained them. Is it the way I ride? or else the bike reviews are really good especially the brakes. Am I missing something here?

    Fail how? Usually the seals just wear out, you could have taper bore avid brakes which are known to trap air pockets.

    They both started failing at the same time? That seems statistically unlikely, but possible. Did you crash?

    I put fresh antifreeze in my radiator and the transmission went out? What happened?

    I have put gas in it, but it just keeps stopping again. I have seen jet engines shut off after a bird hits it, I can't understand why it happens so often. I guess I need to quit mowing up the hills.

    Was it below freezing? You should have put the antifreeze in the transmission! Sheesh!
