    Unfortunately my code rsc brakes have a problem in one lever. Believed to be sticky lever piston. Contacted sram about it and they said the later gen2 internals dont cause an issue… post 2017 I was told by sram. Well I’m pretty sure mine are 2018.

    Guys
    My brakes on my winter hack are driving me insane, I dont think they could get much louder and any more annoying when wet. And I’ve finished the descent by the time they’ve shut up.

    I’m currently using uberbikes sintered and semi metallic. Great brakes in bone dry, but anything wetter than that and they are noisy. Deffo not contaminated!…[Read more]
