I have a set of juicy 3 brakes on my commuter and have noticed that after a week long period of not riding the bike at all the brake levers have to be squeezed a longer distance to get the same braking force. There are no obvious leaks in the lines or connections and the throw is increased about the same amount with broth the front and rear brakes. If I pump the levers, I do get the original feeling back but not for long.
Does all of this mean they need to be bleed? This is my first but not my last set of hydros.
