My buddy rides SRAM Force 1x11 with hydro brakes.

Riding last week, he went down in super slow motion...no damage, and the bike didn't hit the ground.

Just goofing off, he rolled onto his back while still clipped in and held the bike into the air. It was humorous at the time but, the right brake/shifter immediately began to leak hydro fluid. Obviously messy, and that brake was inoperable.

Back at home, we checked the reservoir screws, all tight. No marks on the hoods or anywhere else from any damage.

It just leaked when it was held upside down and worked fine up to that point.

Any ideas, gang? Thinking about sending it to SRAM for warranty...

Wow. That would be a bummer to find out on a bikepacking trip. Flip your bike over to use as a tent anchor and wake up with no brakes far from home. . .
