    Bleeding Formula Oro brakes

    OK I know there is a thread about this, thats where I got the better directions for bleeding. The front worked fine, 1 try and done. But I have done the rear 4 or 5 times now and just cant get it right. Pushing the fluid thru, no bubbles. Pulling the lever, bleeding caliper and m/c separately,no bubbles. Put it all back and the lever goes right to the bar every time.
    The brakes were great when new, but I'm ready to put my BB7's back on and sell the Oros.
    Any tips,tricks or ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Tom

    Maybe the lever stroke increase because brake pads are worn?
