i use the following technique to get my avid brakes working like a charm:
1) don't touch them until they're knackered (about 2 rides).
2) dump them in the bin.
3) replace with shimano deore/ lx/ slx.
my 'avid' brakes now work very well thanks...
(i arrived at this process after spending thousands of hours trying to force the pistons back in, so i could fit some new brake pads to a set of juicy 5's).
anything that requires as much tlc as avid brakes is incompatible with having a life.
