I have a Merida Crossway 500 with Tektro Auriga Comp Brake System. Bike is not quite 2 years old and i've done about 500 kms of commuting (3km a day). Been experiencing poor braking with front brake so decided it was time to change fluid and save $50 getting someone else to do it.
- Well hours and days later, and numerous bleeds I finnally managed to get all the air out of system by syringing fluid in from bottom via the bleed (air bubbles came out top of resivour).
Still no good braking
- removed pads, sanded them, wiped with iso alcohol, sanded discs with 120 grit and wiped.....still a no go.
Where to from here ? new pads ??, cant believe bike shops can get away charging $40 a pair ($80 to do front and back), car brake pads are way bigger and also cheaper.
