    Juicy Issue

    Purchased a new pair of Avid Juicy Ultimates. Installed and bled according to the manual. The fluid that came out on the bleed was almost black. The new fluid of course is almost clear.

    Several weeks later my brakes have gone soft, so I bleed again. Again, black fluid is removed during bleeding. Again the brakes are fine for a couple weeks. Now they are back to soft, I realize I may just not be getting all the air out when I bleed, so I'll keep trying. However, what about the black fluid, is that normal. It looks like it has thousands of suspended little black particles in the fluid. I'm only using Avid brand fluid too.

    The black particles are not normal. If they are "new", I would be going after a warranty replacement.
