    When to bleed brakes?

    Hi,

    For the last 3 years I haven't performed any maintenance to my avid Elixir R SL(have 't used the bike too much either).

    When should I bleed the brakes?
    How do I know is the right time?
    When should I change the brake pads?


    Thanks

    3 years is about the limit of of a DOT brake blled regardless of mileage.

    While the brake forum would be more appropriate, you'll often get the best answers in tooltime.
