Hey guys, just wondering how often everyone bleeds their hydraulic brakes? I've got a pair of Hayes HFX 9's and I've ridden maybe 80-90km and they already need another bleed. I was riding today, and by the end of the 18km ride I could pull the levers all the way to the handle bars
I have already had to completely rebuild one lever's internals (as soon as I bought the bike, before any use. Seller lowered price
It should be noted that I don't see any fluid leaking anywhere from the brakes...at all. None on the discs, none on the bolts connecting the lines to the calipers, none from the overflow holes on the levers.
I'm thinking it's just from the hard braking that I do? I usually cruise around 50-60km/h all the time, some street, lots of trail riding with largely differing grades. Any input from the community would be great!
