I've been plaguing y'all with questions lately...
So I've put these Avid Codes on my 2004 Jamis Komodo which "everyone knows" that in 2004 the Komodo was a Portly'ish trail bike, not the Hefty freeride hardtail like contemporary design.
Anyways...since installing my new XC Avid Codes, my bike has gone from 26lbs 6oz to 26lbs 10oz and I attribute it all to the larger amount of fluid in the master cyl and calipers. Is there a lighter oil that I can use or maybe even 5wt motor oil mixed with water?
Gastro has already tuned me into the Organic pads with Ti backing plates.
What can I do to make racing weight but still have enough stopping power to lock up my rear wheel to slide around on the trail?
