so after a few bleeds i've done on these Shimano saints, because of new levers replacement, i've found that the rear brake lever, although on max stiffness, goes way further to the bar then the other lever (front brake), by around a whole centimetre. I'm sure that there's enough fluid, but is giving the symptoms of not having enough, even though it is full? Can anyone help me as its difficult to get power out of them?

    Have you checked the reach adjust?

    Are the freestroke adjusters equal?

  • Do the front and back levers feel the same, the only difference being when each lever hits “max stiffness” as you put it? Or, does the rear brake lever feel like it slowly creeps up towards max stiffness while the front brake lever hits max stiffness quickly without any spongy feel vs. the rear brake lever?

  • @TedHohl basically, if i put both reach adjusters so it should be on max stiffness, the rear brake lever goes closer to the bar compared to the front, by a whole cm, as if it doesn't have enough fluid in it. Jun 4 at 10:01
