Bleeding to Death
Doing this wide range of maintenance/upgrades, including Spiegler lines and new fluid. I have followed Kirk's video religiously. Have clear fluid flowing everywhere.
Not to a point to ride yet, but the feel of the brakes seems a little soft. Unfortunately, I've only ridden this thing once back in Oct. I think I recall that the stroke of the hand lever and the foot lever was very short. Like the hand lever might have moved 1/4", now it's moving over an inch.
Is my recollection correct? If properly bled, do these levers have very short stroke? Both hand and foot are moving a little over an inch. I have run the bike and tried the levers and no improvement.
I think Kirk's video for bleeding is a case without swapping brake lines. I swapped lines and that basically let air go everywhere.
Let me know if I need to keep bleeding, or take a new approach, or maybe they're fine and my memory is off.
