Elixir 3s on mine. Fitted a new right side matchmaker bracket only a couple of weeks ago and it just snapped again at Thorndon this afternoon. What a pile of crap, going to order some separate brackets now.


I get the impression they are quite fragile. I have a spare right hand side if you need it.

Thanks for the offer, but just ordered a Hope one from Wiggle that will hopefully be stronger. Chain Reaction sold out of the Hope SRAM right side ones, no coincidence I bet.

Just to update popped over to pedalworx as recommended. Nicks a top bloke and got everything working 100%. Turns out I had a fubared rear caliper and both the seals in the levers had seen better days.

Fitted the Hope matchmaker brackets either side now, the left hand Avid bracket was on the verge of sheering off as well (alloy splitting) , it would have gone on the next ride. Hope brackets are way chunkier, about twice as thick.
