Found 1st major downfall of Avid Jucy 7's.

The brake levers crack easy over the last 3 weeks I've gone through 2 sets of them, didn't even crash in that timespan. Will post pics if I can remember to.

No he means the new Juicy 7 HYDRAULIC levers. Believe it or not Danka knows what he's talking about.

Have you ever set a bike up yourself from scratch; didn't think so.

Please don't assume that the person who put they're own bike together doesn't know what they're talking about parts wise, that is usually false.

Is Avid acknowledging this as a strength issue or are they just sending you replacement levers? Actually... I'm assuming that they're sending you replacements under warranty.

Actually, I repaired the 1 one, the other is managable yet. Plus I hope it is a bad batch, if not it will be a looong 2004 season.
