    jammed disc breaks

    I just purchased a new bike with Juicy Seven hydraulic disc brakes. I wasn't aware that I should not pull the brake lever without the tire in place. Now the brake's jammed. Is this fixable? Thanks.

    Doh... thats what the plastic wedge is for in new calipers.

    Should be able to carefully pry the pads apart with a knife.
    A wild man once explained to me how bicycles came from sailboats.
