    How do I get a better feel out of XT brakes?

    So I have a set of XT disk brakes there a little less then a season old with the ice-tech rotors. The rear has a better feel then the front and it drives me crazy. I have bleed them and got all the air out but the front feels soft compared to the rear. I just never seem to get a nice feel from it. I have had some fade from it on a long technical downhill in the last few weeks.

    Good point from ricky. Any chance of contaminating the pads at some point?

    Its possible. I was thinking yesterday that they might be glazed over. I have to pull them and look.

    Are they new or used when you got them. I bought some new xts i think from Blue Sky or Bikewagon about a year ago and they turned out to be part of the defective first m785 batch. The piston seals were messed up. All i did was replace pads. I ended up getting Zee and SLX calipers. Im also having brake issues myself. It sucks doesnt it :-(
