I paid to have my rear brake bled when I was on a long road trip recently and didn’t have a bleed kit with me. My XT was still doing the “wandering bite point” \(as it was called in the comments section of the foxy review\), so I bled it again when I got home. I flushed out a full line’s worth of grey oil. Either the shop that bled them used cheap grey mineral oil and filled the lines with about as much air as they had before, or my brakes weren’t bled.  I should have done my spring cleaning before I hit the road. I had dropped a coil spring and an open-bath Avalanche damping cartridge in my Pike and said “nice, my bike is now super low maintenance”. I forgot about the other parts.
