Avid Juicy five lever problem


Recommended Posts



Avid Juicy five brake levers:


My front brake lever is not returning to its normal position once compressed. The caliper is fine, and the brakes are not dragging. So when I pull the brakes, the lever is really slow to return to its normal position, almost like the piston inside the lever side is getting stuck.


I have bled the brakes, made no difference.


Any idease?

maybe just clean inside the brake lever there might be a bit of dirt or contamination that is preventing the piston from moving freely

Have you tried fidlling with the reach adjustment scrww in the lever? Try a few different settings there and see if it makes a difference.
