Re: handbrake issues

did you check the adjuster cables where the hand brake is? usually it lets you adjust the tension on each side.

Re: handbrake issues

you might try bleeding again, or adjusting the cables separately for each rear brake setup. im unfortunately not too familiar how the hand brake works with rear disc brakes.
