yes this has been posted over and over again and for some reason the mods will not accept that the cailpers are junk or gen 1 and gen 2 bikes... they always want everyone to throw 100s of dollors on new pads, lines and mastercyc but it doesn't help.
just now, are you starting to see people beliving its the calipers that are flawed. if you take a light and look down into the calipers while pulling the lever, you will see the pistons move but since they are pulled to far back in the bores, and you have made lever traval. cleaning and lubing the shit out of pistons makes them work right for a short time, but then they start sticking again.
true fading from hard race days is not what this is about. for some reason people want to stick their in the ground rather than hear anything bad about their bikes. for me... doesn't matter if its mine or not... junk is junk in my book, if anything I'm pissed a spent my money on junk and would want to warn others not too... but here its over look all the bad for the few good things.
pisses me off.
