I just bought a Haro DHR at the end of last year and have only put a few rides on it so far. When riding downhill the rear brake lever would drop almost to the handlebar after riding a short time. So I shortened the brake line to the correct length for the bike and bled the brakes. I rode the bike around town for a few days and had no problems. I went to killington vermont this weekend, after a short trip the same thing started again. I have been told by some that the rear brake is getting hot and then starts to fade. If I pump the lever a couple of times then it feels right. After a couple more minutes the lever is real close to the bar again. It is a real bad feeling to come flying into a turn and grab the lever and have nothing there. Any suggestions?
