    Guide Brake Not Holding Pressure

    Through a warranty from SRAM for my XX brakes, I was giving the Guide brakes in January of this year. I did not use the bike until May or June and now have only put probably 50-75 miles on them. Mostly used for an 1 to 1.5 hour ride on rolling trails. I have already had the rear brake bleed about a month ago and it is already loosing pressure. The front brake is done also. I can pull the leavers back to the handlebar with very little effort.

    Has anyone heard or experienced this issue? I do not want to pay for a brake bleed every month (would not trust myself to do my own bleeds, never done it before).

    Mine have worked flawlessly since new in May (one bled for fit the other never bled). Lots of pretty hard miles. I know this doesn't help, just for comparison.
