    Elixer R - levers pull to bar after wet ride

    I got a new-to-me bike with Elixer R brakes and 180mm rotors that were purchased new last year. I've gone on several rides and been quite pleased with the performance on steep descents, although I haven't gotten them to stop rubbing yet. Yesterday I got caught out in some pretty decent rain and soon enough the rear lever just pulled right to the bar. I guessed that the pads might be shot but there is plenty of material left on both front and rear. I get home and hang the bike up (vertically for the first time, new rack) and in the morning the FRONT lever pulls to the bar as well. I can adjust the levers way out to get some pad contact but it's not ideal.

    I'm guessing that the only solution to this is a full bleed. Am I right?

    I answered my own question: yes.
