    Bleeding Avid Juicy 3's

    Anyone with any hot tips on how to get the best results from bleeding these.

    Ive done it a few times but they never seem to be quite right.

    Thanks

    I do it like on SRAM video for Avid Juicy brakes on Youtube, with the dude in ultra-mega cool shorts

    P.S. Did you move the lever from the bars ? But not to the fullest position.

    Thats the important step. I had no luck doing my brakes wearing the wrong shorts.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.

    Yes, but in the vid they say not to pull it to the end, cause then you won't have a proper bleed.

    I put it almost to the full outway position. Try it, maybe it will make a difference . It did when I bleed my rear Juicy 3 .

    how much should my avid elixer 3 brake levers compress? if i measure from the tip of the lever it moves 2 inches. Do i need more fluid or is that normal?
