Lots of threads around about bleeding discs when they're squishy, or to correct a poor factory bleed, but I am trying to determine a good benchmark for how firm Elixirs should feel once ideal.
Mine travel smoothly until pad engagement on the disc at a good distance from the bar, which is a cleanly discernible stop. From there another half inch or so of travel at decent firmness is the range of useable modulation, before the rear locks at speed on pavement, front can be squeezed a tad further and it begins to lift the rear. However, sitting still it doesn't take a ton of effort to squeeze the levers all the way to the bar, but that would have been far beyond wheels locked while riding. Is this just hose expansion and normal, or a less than perfect bleed? I have limited hydraulic disc experience, but they are nowhere near as firm at the lever as well adjusted cable actuated rim brakes.
