    Brake pad failure 07 Stumpy FSR Pro

    Anybody else having this problem?The pad is seperating from the plate that it is attached to..I got a new set of pads and went on 2 rides ('bout 12 miles each)and 1/2 way thru the
    2nd ride i apply the rear brakes and hear this grinding noise and low & behold i have no pad on 1 side of the rear brake.This is the 3rd time this has happened since i have had this bike,(11 months)2 times on the rear,1 time on the front.Is this considered a defect?
    Thanks for any help with this issue..

    That is very, very strange. I have an 07 Stumpy FSR Elite and nothing like that since I got it in April. I still have about 50% of the pad left.

    Do your brake levers snap back when you pull them in?

    My pads started to fade one ride, then to a point at which, there was practically nothing left on the pads. I thought it was rather strange and ordered myself a new set of pads. Within two rides, I had used nearly 60% of the contact surface. Took it back to the bike shop.

    Problem? Inside the brake levers is a rubber o-ring which the levers connect and operate on had blown (deformed basically), causing the pads to work inconsistently (grind and drag) and not respond back quick enough. Those were on my Juicy 7's. It was considered a manufacture defect and was replaced with brand new Juicy 5's.
