    Lever play fix?

    Someone know if there is a fix for the lever play that develops with time in the Juicy 7s?

    Thanks

    I found that taking the pins out and laying some grease all over them, reduced the play alot on my old code 5's

    You can either replace the lever bushings. Or you can remove the lever, pop out the pushings, and sandwich small pieces of aluminum foil between the bushing and the lever body until it takes up the slack.

    I've had good results using thin aluminum (think coke can,red bull,etc) and using a paper hole punch to make the hole. I just trim the outer diameter with scissors.

    I'm getting some Avid Elixirs. I can get two sets of Elixirs for the price of a set of Saints...

    ever wonder why they are cheaper......if you were going to have heart surgery would you take the lowest bidder???

    thin brake caliper shim washers work well for that as well. add as many as you need.

    WTF?!?! I dont see how that is relevant to MTB brakes.I have a set of Saint on my Session and love them,strong and super reliable so far.

    I also have a set of Elixir on my Remedy and like them equally if not more. Easier to bleed and the pads are 1/3 of the price of Saint pads.

    So you think because the Saint are more expensive it makes them better quality ?

    Stupid argument. Your Saint ass kissing won't work on me, I recognize Saint cranks are superior to most offering out there, but in the braking department there are cheaper and much better options out there.
