Jon could you not take the brakes to a shop sans bike?

Cheers Geoff, there's an Evans, Cycle Surgery and something else ( @ Aldgate ?) quite near here, good excuse to get out and stretch the legs...

any decent shop would have a ring for doing that and they could test them on a disc in store so take the pads with you too.

Just to clarify though you are using proper shimano fluid and not hydraulic fluid?

Yup proper shimano fluid.

I bought a new bottle yesterday and just filled the funnel and pumped it through, then bled again, it's much better, about the same as the front, but neither are great considering how my old set are! But it's rideable so I'll try and get some bedding in done and re-bleed later.:smile:

I'm on the damn phone....
