Last number of rides I've been experiencing slop in the lever for my front brake. It gets a good half inch of slop where the lever doesn't feel like it's working. It's kind of intermittent and will be fine sometimes but then gets crappy again. I don't think I'm doing anything to overheat the brakes or anything. Although when this problem starts in the middle of a ride I can't help but feather the brake a little on descents to make sure I've got some brakes left.
Does this just sound like a bleed/maintenance issue or something more serious? One of my thoughts was that the piston in the caliper is getting stuck and not rebounding or something. Any feedback would be appreciated.
