    Brake Pads for Helix equipped Cannondale

    I found a good ebay store that sells brake pads for my 2013 29er Trail SL 4. I know in the past many Cannondale owners were have difficulty finding replacement pads for Helix brake systems. I email the seller and he informed me that they do sell Helix 6 model brake pads for Cannondale bikes.

    I use Hayes sole sintered pads. Direct fit. They are magnetic and easy to remove. Just don't touch your levers when they are out. You may need to push the pistons in with a flat edge. Let me know in your reservoir on the levers leak slightly .

    It your leaking brake fluid from your levers, I would suggest you take it to your LBS. If may be time to bleed your brakes or replace a seal.

    I lost a tiny drop through the breather hole in the middle of the reservoir. I'd have thought it was there for that reason ? Nothing happened after that. Brakes are fine.
