Funny you should bring up this post. Just last week I was wondering if my rear brake was working without providing extra force on the pedal. When I come to a stop I apply the front brake and then the rear brake, it seems that the rear brake is doing nothing, so while going slow, I just pressed the rear pedal and the bike does slow down, just not as much as with the front level pressed.
On the pre-electric brakes, I think that this is common. The pads will get some glazing on them. The only time that I notice a real solid rear brake pedal is when I change out the pads. While you bleed the brakes, you may want to rough up the pads some.
