I have got some avid juicy 5 disc brakes and was wondering how they differ to V brake and servicing them. I have never used before and a bit lost to what to do with them when servicing. please help - all comments greatly received.

I.e with v brakes you just replace brake pads and adjust tensioners and alignment but was wondering how long they would last if I was using on a daily basis and doing about 25miles per week (approx).

    TBH if they are set up right you have nothing to do untill the pads wear out.

    replacing pads is simple ish ( read the manual) when the lever gets squishy they will need a bleed (2 -3 years).
