    Anyone ever had this experience with XT's?

    Front Brake

    Brake performancel is fine, no air in the system, good bleed, but after some hard braking, not even enough to get the brake hot, the inner piston does not retract as it should and it starts rubbing.

    Now here's where it gets weird. After about a minute, it slowly goes back to it's normal position and everything works fine again . The brake is only a few months old....the pads are worn down to about half....spacing is fine....

    I've tried rebleeding, lubing and cleaning the pistons....I was going to get some new pads, but..

    Any ideas?

    Remove the wheel and pads, pump the pistons out a little, clean them off and lube them with mineral oil.
    May fix the problem.
