Jimmy's Bleedin' Brakes Like a Boss
We were invited to a tech clinic on how to properly bleed Avid brakes, but chose not to go, because well, our mechanics have already been trained and DO IT ALL THE TIME. So the SRAM/Avid reps swung by today after the clinic and told us that ALL 60 of the attendees from other bike shops in Oregon MISSED AT LEAST ONE STEP in the bleed process. Our head mechanic asked if they would watch him bleed one to make sure we weren't missing a step. Nope, perfect. Just sayin'.
