XO Caliper + Elixir Lever

XO Caliper + Elixir Lever

I bought a set of Avid XO brakes a while back, and while I loved the performance, the rear had a leak somewhere. Eventually, I gave up trying to fix it and put the Elixir 1 back on the back.

But Saturday's ride down Bulldog had my Elixir rear brake overheated and squealing while the XO up front was doing just fine. So I'm trying an experiment. I put the rear XO brake back on the bike, but replaced the the leaky XO lever with the non-leaky Elixir lever. The internals of the levers are similar, so I'm hoping the Elixir lever will play well with the XO caliper.

We'll see how this goes. Stay tuned...
