    How to replace brakes on Rush ...

    ... Without disconnecting the caliper from the brake handle?

    Hi, i want to replace the brakes on my Rush Carbon, but the caliper and lever are to big to sqeeze them between the frame and Lefty. I prefer not to disconnect the lever and caliper as that would mean a new blead for the brakes and assiciated costs.

    What are my options?

    I have Avid brakes and I was able to take off the blade lever and wiggle the brake lever between the head tube and lefty.
