I just bought a set of brand new TRP Spyre brakes. As I first checked them I noticed that when I pull the arm with my hands the movement of it feels a bit notchy, not smooth, and it also makes a bit of noise. It feels like a worn out, or really bad quality bearing. I can kind of feel it at the lever too.
Is this normal or did I get a bad set?
It’s a Spyre-C, which is the OEM version according to the TRP website (I bought it because it’s all black).
I bought it straight from Taiwan on eBay, do you guys think that might be the source of my problem? 🙂
Yeah, the movement of the arm feels notchy, that’s the best word to describe it.
I don’t have the wheels yet so I only tried the brake with simply just a lever attached, with the disc in the arm probably moves so little that I won’t feel the notchiness, but I might still strip the brakes down and grease them so I sleep better at night.
So weird that the bearings come bone dry from the factory… ❓
