2010 Avid Juicy 3

The Good:

reach adjustment is not effected by the reach adjustment.
I've not had any issues with leaks, contaminated rotors, pads, or brake fluid on the master cylinder. Decent modulation, and grab.
can get all parts as spares, so you can fully rebuild these brakes.

The Bad:

After few years I lost power, and the bike shop bleeding the brakes, did not help, I was braking hard and brake barely braked., and the lever blade was slow to return, so it was probably a internal issue, the piston assembly probably needed to be replaced.
No hinge to quickly swap brakes.
can't take the brake pads out from the top.
usses toxic, paint eating, DOT fluid, it's bad for your skin and eyes.

Overall Review:

So I the brakes probably could have been rebuilt to work again, but I left them at the shop. and shop managed to get Shimano M615, but those leaked in less than 2 years.
