I have a 4 month old giant talon 1. It came with the root hydraulic brakes and they were great until I tried a buddies avid juicy 3 brakes and wow, what a difference.
They root brakes cant lock up the front wheel on pavement.
I have taken the rotor and pads out and sanded them with wet dry paper to see if they were contaminated and then did a bout 30 minutes to fast riding then stopping to try and bed the brakes but they still are quite weak.
Is it just the brakes? should I get some better pads?
If I need to bleed the rotors, is there a guide specific to these brakes? and is there a kit that is compatible?
