I bought an Avid Juicy 7 brake system true the internet and went to my local Mountain Bike shop to fit them on my Kona.
Problems started just a few miles of my first trail with the new brakes fitted. What happens is that the brake pads of the front wheel, progressively, got closer, to the point that the pads are at al time in contact with de brake disc, even without pressing the break lever :madman: . I tried to take out the wheel and press the pads so that they would go back to their original place, but they don't go back enough to allow the wheel to turn freely.
The break hoses had to be shortened in order to fit in the bike. Can that be the source of the problem?
Do they need bleeding? Bad lubrication of the pistons? Too much oil in the system?
I thank you for any help.
