Interesting stuff as I was thinking of doing the levers on mine. Looking at them I thought it would be easy to hold the piston in with a cable tie and then get the lever off the master cylinder assembly.
What happens to the piston thingy when you remove the lever?
Not sure,i didnt watch
Wheelcraft is an institution so theres always other things going on .laughs to be had ,coffee to be made and piss to be taken
Given that one piston has to come out to fit the bore cap its going to be messy but from what i remember[i know only yesterday
] the lever gubbings stay more or less together and its only the cam,return spring and the blade itself that comes apart
The Hope factory is about a mile from my house and one of the design guys Aston Payne lives down the road, I chat to him every now and then about RB and Hope products and is a really nice chap.
Next time you see him,thank the staff in general for me
You'll be getting the ones from the special edition brakes, I have the M4's on my Salsa Ala Carte.
It's just the adjusters mind,cant see them sending me the bore caps too
,nice to offer in the first place,dont want to appear to be a scrounger[though i unashamedly am
