Hi,

My bike has Avid Juicy 4 RSL hydraulic brakes. While changing the front tire, I accidentally pressed the brake levers which caused the gap between the pads to adjust and now the disc won't feet! How can I fix this?

I know you've read this in other threads; but why don't you just refrain from participating in threads were you feel the urge to act like a jerk?

RSL. Not sure if they are the same; but these come as OEM parts on some Specialized models.

In any case, I fixed the issue by inserting a screw driver between the pads and pressing the levers to force readjustment.

I'm not being a jerk; this is perhaps the number one question that novices with disc brakes ask, and what they should know. There's a tremendous resource right at the top of this page no one takes advantage of.

...not to mention being searchable.

I read the FAQ. That's how I understood what the problem was. I didn't see a fix for it there though.

And for those who haven't seen it, would it be so difficult to point them to it without the snark?.

I thought that was in the faq too, but don't see it. It is frequently asked, though, although the search function does kinda suck.

What's RSL? Is that what Special ed used when they slapped their label on the brakes?

Not much info out there it seems, wonder if there's any difference from the Juicy 3? What could be in between feature-wise between a 3 and 5 to get the 4 designation?

The alloy backed pads of course.
