Front brake knock
on: September 22, 2019, 02:16:12 PM
Hi All,
After a refresh service where i changed the oil and seals in the front forks, Hyperpro spring in the rear, brake pads all around and steering head bearings, bike felt really like new, whole different riding feeling, everything was lighter, easier, brakes bite immediately, no spongy feeling except....
every time i even touch the lever i get this knock from the calipers area. I first noticed it after some miles, slow speed in the city. Then i tried pushing the bike, and it happens every single time i touch the lever.
Interestingly enough - doesn't happen when I push the bike backwards.

I have a short video, not sure how to attach it without it being on youtube/vimeo first.
