just came to change the rear pads in my avid x0 trails for the first time
not as easy as id expected quite frankly
when i push the pistons back in, one of the other pistons (theres 4) pops out, i can get one side to fully sit back into the bores, but the opposite side, i push one in and it pops the other out further, and vice versa!
i had some uber bike pads to put in, but couldnt get anywhere near enough clear space to get the disc through, had absolutly no chance, as it one side isnt sitting flush, i cannot for the life of me get all four pistons to sit back in the bores, push one in and the other pushes out, and even if i lever across both calipers on side by the time i put the pads in the seem to have come back out together making the gap to small to get the disc in
are uber bike pads really thick? theyve basically ruined one set of pads just trying to get the buggers in the disc
should have been a nice 2 minute job, and turned into a disaster!
whats more ive managed to round off the pad retaining bolt (luckily it wasnt that tight so undid it with pliers....where can i get a replacement one? or does anyone know if another version/brand will fit?
