I just received my new Goblin this weekend and am going through assembly and tuning. Doesn't seem as hard after watching a few videos and going through the manual, but its taking some time as I've never done proper tuning myself before.
As I was adjusting the front disc to eliminate the rub (I just loosened the two screws and eyeballed it until I had no more rub while spinning the wheel) with the wheel in place I squeezed the front break a few times, to make sure it wouldn't rub again. I have the bike upside down as I don't have a stand yet, and got surprised that when squeezing the brake I had a few drips of brake fluid drop off from the caliper.
Is this normal (given the bike was upside down)? Do I have a leak and/or should I be worried about it? Or does this mean the brakes weren't bled properly and only the excess fluid is supposed to leak out?
New to disc brakes and just need a few pointers what is to be expected especially for a new bike.
