Avid Juicy 5 help!! =(
Hi there, I received what I "thought" to be a front brake adapter (160mm) for my Avid Juicy 5. I think I was wrong since the front adapter that I received is identical to the rear adapter... Also, the caliper doesn't quite seem to be adjusted properly since with the adapter I received only half of the pads touch the rotor (i.e., the adapter is the wrong shape?) I'll try and take a pic ASAP but can you guys tell me this: are the front & rear adapters on Juicy 5s different shapes?
Also, I can't seem to manage to align the rear caliper (which has the correct adapter) with the freaking rotor, I keep getting lots of rubbing and I've tried aligning it at least 10 times (loosen CPS bolts, squeeze lever five times, keep held, tighten CPS bolts, etc).
Thanks a bunch!!
PS: Not only that but the front lever seems to have play in it, I can wiggle it up and down a few millimetres; how can I tighten it?
