    where did my fluid go?

    i have a set of avid code 5 hydraulic brakes on my bike, hung it up for the winter and just took it down and my rear brake went from perfect to loose and squishy using more than all its pull. i took the bike down and let it sit for 2 days pullin the brakes a bit to try and get the fluid movin but it is staying loose, before i decide to bleed them, anyone know why this happened?

    You had a stubborn air bubble in the system. When it was oriented differently, the air managed to get free.
