Hi. This is my first post. I have a 2005 Jamis Komodo 2.0 and i have a couple of problems. It has the Hayes Nines Brakeset. The rear brake's fluid went out as i accidently pressed the brake loever when the caliper was unscrewed. so the fluid is gone. I want to adjust my brakes so that the lever is loose and not tight like it was. Also, my disks keep rubbing on the brake, so i noticed that my rims were both bent slightly. Does anyone know where i could get a spoke key to tighten some of my spokes to straighten out the rim. im pretty sire that will fix my disk running problem. what kind of brake fuil do i need and where coudl i get it? how can i adjust my brake levers? thanks alot.

you need to know what size nipples you have. once you do you can but spoke wrenches from a bikeshop/online.
BUT straightening your wheels wont straighten your rotors...2 separate things. you have to carefully bend the rotor straight
look there for the manual to your brakes....sounds like you just need to make sure the pistons are pushed in and bleed the brakes.
