Anyone else had this problem with the BR775's?
I see on the product reviews one guy from Canada had the same problem, which is brake fluid escaping onto the pads/discs when temp is less than 0.
Was out in -4 deg this week and it happened to me, totally lost all braking power due to fluid all over the pads. This must be a design flaw they're workin on?
:mad:

I haven't had the problem of the fluid leaking yet, but when riding in su 30-degree F temps, the lever pull is reduced to almost nothing. Additionally, the brake pads tend to rub because of fluid expansion. I don't think that brakes that use mineral fluid are very good for cold-weather riding.
