    Lost BackDisc Brakes

    I have found that after the bike was stored for awhile while traveling and I put the wheels back on when I got back the back disc brakes have almost lost all the tension on the lever. What does this mean, do I need to replace the brake pad or can I adjust the brakes somehow?

    I have a 2008 Giant XTC 2 like this one : http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-AU/...in/1334/29475/ - it says the brakes are "Shimano M485 hydraulic w/6" centre-lock rotors". Maybe they just need some fuid, I will take a closer look now...

    I checked the brake oil container on the handlebars and I can't see much oil in there, should this be showing oil in it or is it just used to squirt a little bit in there, would this cause the brakes to go soft? what is a good oil to buy?
