- Shimano slx lever a bit slow to return.?
On my rear brake the last 20% of return travel is a bit sluggish, just drags a bit. But gets there. However if you’re in and off the brakes it can feel a bit like there’s air in it.
If so, any options?
If no options, what’s a good brake to replace with now days? I like and want something that’s easily bled as I’ll have to take it apart anyway to sort the internal routing through framePosted 2 months agocoatesyMember
I wouldn’t say it’s a common issue, but we’ve had a few through the workshop in the past. A replacement lever’s probably the cheapest option (pick any one from the Shimano range), though you could end up with a Trigger’s broom situation if the calipers succumb to the infamous leakage (i’ve been there, 2 levers, and 4 calipers in 2 years. Now running Hope race X2, been faultless for 2 years, much as my black/gold mono mini’s were since the time Hope superceded them with silver ones).Posted 2 months agoendomickMember
I’ve had this issue with old and new brakes, a few squirts of silicon spray on the master cylinder seal fixed it, but if squirting all the seals didn’t help or the bleed, treat yourself to some Hope’s, too many leaks and inconsistent feel with shimano in the past, Hope’s are the first thing I put on a new bike.Posted 2 months ago
