Avid Juicy 3s? You know why they're called juicy don't you? It's because they leak all the time.

BTW the brake is an M4 which came out a couple of years before they changed them to Mono M4s. I've found the lever feel of these brakes to be quite variable. Sometimes they feel really positive and other times they feel as spongy as a victoria sponge cake in sponge land. :wink:
