    bleeding question shimano zee

    I have solid bleeds in both my front and rear brake. The thing that's bothering me with the brakes is there is too much free stroke for my liking. So the question is, can i remove my wheel squeeze the lever to push the pistons out slightly and then add more fluid to the lever? Will this work in theory?

    Yes, that shoud work. You might not need to add fluid.

    If it doesnt work you only need to reset the pistons and maybe realgn the disc and caliper.
