Avid Juicy 3 Meltdown
This is the first set of Avid disc brakes I've had. It looks like when the pads are extremely worn you should change them. Maybe before! The little wire piece that hold them together and helps tension them out looks like it needs a bit of a ridge from the brake pad to keep it in place. The little wire piece got ripped through the break today on Henry's ridge. It took a little while to figure out what happened. I took the break off and tied it to my handlebar, and rode the rest of the ride with just a rear break. I have had the breaks for right one two years without any problems. I haven't gone out to the garage to put it all together with new pads and see if it's all working. Hopefully it's fine.
