As we made our way up towards the Highline trail my front brakes decided this was going to be the day that they really needed to be bled. I was easily able to pull the level to the grip with about 75% stopping power on the front end, nice. Just the day before I bled my rear brakes and passed on doing the front because they felt so good, go figure.
Our route for the day would take us around Sedona on a 49 mile loop, lots of ups & downs, but nothing too crazy as far as extended climbing with the largest one only being a 400' gain.
