FS : Avid Elixir 5 - Need repairs
#1
Hiya chaps

Now i have my new brakes i no longer need the sticky elixirs

Basically the rear pistons stick on one side meaning one side pushes out more then the other and causes the pads to bind on the rotor ... Im assuming all it needs is a proper strip down and all should be fine,  O and a new set of brake pads

Front is fine

Both calipers have scratches on and levers have a few scuffs aswell ... What do you expect from used stuff ?

Comes with 160mm IS mount front and 160mm IS mount rear adaptors and Avid Tri align bolts

Will get photos up later

Looking for £50 collected, Although open to offers ?

Right had these looked at last night,  Sticky piston on the side opposite the mount.  Easily fixed so im told,  Worse case scenario is a new seal (Dirt cheap)

Ill get some pictures up when the digital camera decides to work !
