Sounds like you boiled your brake fluid. When that happens, you create a vapour pocket in the system, and it acts like an air spring.John Bozi wrote: ↑Dec 17 2017 8:48amMy next goal is to work out how not to fry my brakes. My last ride scared me. A long 50 km ride with repeated steep 200 metre descents climbs and repeat with ambient temps of 30+degreesC... when my rear started grumbling and then the worst my hydraulics just completely went on the front... The front somehow came back after 20 minutes of me freaking out how to get home in a place I wasnt sure where I was with no front brake! no regen with my controller Vs
I just recall one of the bomb squad had extended fins on the brake pad bits. my saints aren't enough...
The black diamond symbol pretty much sums up the elevation changes..
You should change your fluid (and perhaps upgrade from mineral oil to DOT brake fluid if you currently have the former.)
