Guys new bike arrived on Friday and apart from a tiny scratch I’m really happy. It’s has a complete xt groupset and the brakes seem poor! If I hold the bike in the air by the saddle with the rear brake on I can pedal through like there’s not enough force from the brake. Is this a bleed fix? Front does the same

Do you know what sort of oil the XT brakes use. Certainly seems like there must be air in them somewhere.

No gunner haven't a clue, got the bike from Tredz and I'm not impressed. Hopefully get it to the LBS tomorrow let them have a look hopefully just a bleed also rear gears aren't indexed correctly. May just be the barrel screw on the shifter cable but gonna get it sorted by LBS after informing Tredz maybe let them see the invoice as well
