- Hope Mini pistons seized onto disc
Decided to spring clean one of my bikes this afternoon only to take it for a spin and have the front pistons clamp on after a few metres. I remember this happening last year but don’t recall how I resolved it (temporarily it seems now).
All I did to the brakes beforehand was scuff up the pads and stick some cleaner on the discs.
Any ideas? TaPosted 4 years agokhaniMember
Dot brake fluid absorbs moisture over time, when they warm the fluid expands and locks the brake on, that’s probably why they were ok when they cooled down, a quick fix is to open the bleed nipple to let out the excess fluid but it’ll need a bleed to sort it out properlyPosted 4 years ago
