- Slightly odd Deore (M596) brake issue
Does anyone get a slightly annoying issue with these brakes?
If you pump the brake (even whilst stationary), do you get a the bite point moving out from bars?
It feels like the pistons are moving out and not returning quick enough to keep up with the lever. Leave it a couple of seconds and it’s back to “normal”.
Doesn’t effect the power but it’s slightly off putting.Posted 5 years agoweeksySubscriber
Inconsistent travel in the lever usually is that as the bubble is moving about and allowing movement without pushing the pistons. I dunno which end… never given it that much thought.
I do like that Shimanos can esily be gravity bled to a great extent. Leave the cap off for a few hours with the lever pulled back (cable tie) and gravity will allow the bubbles out.
That is of course unless the bubble is ‘stuck’ which will involve some lifting/moving of the caliper/lever to free it up.Posted 5 years ago
