    Xtr Trail Disc Brake.

    Hi guys,

    i just switched from V Brakes to Disc, so mind my incompetence if you could share some knowledge i just bought these brakes and i just bedded my brakes. My problem is during downhills,the front doesn't seem to fade but the rear brakes, seems to have a big problem going down the hill. Is this because of heat? or it's normal for that to happen.Again , i have no clue about disc brakes, kinda shocking to find the rear brakes seem to lose it's power at some point and have it return back to normal after i stop using it. I just rebled my brakes, and i saw a couple of bubbles when i pushed the oil up to the yellow reservoir, could this have caused it? Both my rotors are 160mm. Hope you can help.

    Cheers,
    benny

    Hi Guys,

    Need your feedback again, some marks have appeared on the brake levers.like a small black line..both sides
    Do you know if polishing it off using autosol is possible?

    Thanks!
