    Bled Stroker- nipple leaks? Help.

    Ok, I think I messed up. My rear brake (Stroker Trail) felt a little mushy, and I had the bleed kit so I thought I would give it a wack... All went well (I thought), but the bleed nipple on the brake weeps. What can I do? Should I try and find a replacement nipple? Should I be using some sort of threadlocker? Guess I'll be visiting the LBS tomorrow...

    Thanks-
    It was leaking from the threads. I removed the nipple, cleaned it, put a little Locktite on it and let it sit for a few minutes, then reinstalled it and bled it again. I then used Velcro to keep the brake lever pressed (pressure) for about 1/2 hr to see if I could get any fluid out, and got nothing so it looks good now! So I think I should add a rebuild kit or two for the calipers and levers to my bag of tricks.
