I just got a XT hydro setup, and so far I'm loving the power. However, I can pull the lever back about one inch where I get full braking power, and then if I apply more force, I can pull my lever back by about half an inch - an inch.

The brakes have an amazing amount of power, and they are supposed to be pre-bled from the factory. Also, I'm using the OEM plastic hydro lines. Is this much flex normal, or do I have air in my hydro lines???



PS...They dont feel any more spongy than my friend's Hayes HFX9 that are supposingly somewhat correctly setup... ??
