By the time I got home the rear brake was locked almost to the point that I could not move the bike. Rear brake lever had zero travel in the driveway. I had to bleed the rear brake to get the bike rolled into the garage.
Any in-sight into this problem would be great.
I know you already have to cleanspeed lever.
On the same rides with you.
I had mine fade away half way down that mountain going into Bishop. I do not know what fluid was in there before. I did a fluid flush with fresh DOT 5.1 fluid. I suggest you do the same for your issue. I compressed the caliper full travel as well to clean that fluid out of there.
I do a fluid flush on my brakes and the Clutch at least twice a year.
