    avid elixir cr leaking around lever

    my son rode my bike today and now the front lever is wet and not front brakes.... any sugestion? did it just bypass and dump the fluid out or did he bust the master cyclinder?

    he said he squeezed it pretty hard too..... and it went all the way down slowly now nothing....

    i had the same thing happen too my elixirs after about half a summer of riding if even that much. in my opinion the levers on the elixirs are cheaply made and unreliable.I bought a pair of formula megas and i weigh 260 fully geared and they have yet too let me down on some pretty hairy long hills with a lot of long hard braking.(when you weigh as much as me you get going real fast down hill, too fast for the rocky rooty trails i ride most times so i brake alot)
