I don't think it is a bleeding/air issue. Here's the thing, I just bled them with yellow block in. Did the pump and open valve thing to firm up lever (in. No air in system) but when I put the wheel c back in there was still too much travel. So I took wheel out and squeezed brakes with no block or spacer......wheel back in and brakes are great.
I don't really understand this as clearly the pistons have moved out and stayed out, but I don't get how the lever pressure is still firm as the pistons moving out must have vacated some space which would be filled with fluid...but I haven't added extra fluid to compensate.
There is a red spacer for pad spacing, but I found this still resulted in too much travel.
Anybody out there got a failsafe technique?
