I just installed a set of Shimano XT brakes. The brakes cames pre-bled from the factory. The front hose did not need shortening, but the rear was much too long. I shortened the rear hose following instructions found here as well as Shimano's tech docs. I didn't bled the rear brakes after shortening the hose because the brake feels firm.
Since I previously had BB7 mechanical brakes, I don't know how much travel XT levers are suppose to have. I really like the reach adjustment, but if I bring the levers in too close, it will hit my fingers before the brakes are fully applied. Both levers move the same amount. Can anyone tell me how much their levers travel?
