You all know about my head on collision. A broken clamp on my ft brake lever and it being a white juicy five lever (special order I thought) I thought I needed to take bike where I bought it as it was a oem item.
3 days later they informed me that white was no longer in stock.
They suggested I shop Ebay. Found one, ordered it and they actually sent 2 front brake assembly's.Cool, So when I ordered it i called shop for them to order a rotor as it was bent as well as my ft rim.
7 days later when I was picking up my bike (I assume they ordered the rotor only after I brought them the brake assembly and not when I ordered it as I was trying to coordanate thier arrivial) He said he had to bleed them even though they came preassembled.
Hyper Kids in car and wanting to get home I paid my bill and left. Got home ,washed bike to get brake fluid off the bike I found that I didnt like the feel of said lever. After asking a few people on this site they said symptoms indicated air in the line. Rather than taking it to another shop I just switched to the other assembly they had sent me in error. An hour later and everything fixed I asked myself why didnt do it myself.
After inspecting the part that was taken off I noticed gouges on the pads. What I assumed was he sqweezed the lever without a rotor present and couldnt pry them apart so he opened them up. I will never doubt my mechanical abilities ever again.
