The correct service procedure is to throw your Juicys in the trash. Seriously, the probability that the seals are blown in the lever are high. For casual use the cheapest Shimano hydraulic brakes...

You've ridden the bike for four hours already right? Did it stop properly on those rides? If it did, leave the brakes as is and just ride.

Or just buy a pair of levers that are brake only. I have Tektro road levers on a bike and they look and feel like Campy. Why go through all that bother?

Question: Why do you want cable discs? Shimano hydraulics are the best of the best - dead simple setup and zero maintenance, and they stop better than anything else I've tried.

OP HAS the 9 speed shifter.
It's a no brainer to upgrade to 9 speed at this time. They already have the "expensive" part.
IF it came factory, the bike may also have a 9 speed chain? If that's the...

The rear (right) shifter will work fine. It's the left (front) shifter that will have problems. Shimano "mountain" front derailleurs use more cable pull than "road" shifters supply. The way around...

I wouldn’t advise the novice to go indiscriminately tightening stem bolts or really anything the clamps to something else without a torque wrench handy.

I'd buy 2-3. 1's a fluke.
If you use them all in relatively short order, wish you's bought 17 more.

If the R8000 cassette has a 34 tooth large cog, it will fit a 10 speed freehub body. That is why the spacer would be necessary on an 11 speed freehub. The Dura Ace is 11 speed compatible only so the...

I think you should buy one, then use it until itís gone. Once that is finished, buy a different one, and repeat. There are enough brands that, by the time you finish your experiment, youíll be dead.

Donít kick yourself - grx was only announced a few months back and the components are just now trickling in. This thread is the first real-world report I know of someone getting their hands on grx.

You can do satin finish using 3M Scotch Brite Abrasive hand pads (solutions.3m.com). Very easy, takes from 5 to 10 minutes. I think that is best you can do to refinish titanium surface. Good luck.
