I am scared of my wife telling off that I don't spend enough time with them . Seriously, I am considering this too, but not very confident with doing it myself.

I would really suggest you bleed your brakes again. IF you don't feel confident go to another shop. A good shop should not charge you more than 1 hour to bleed your brakes. You might also have them use a rubber hammer and tap each brake caliper as they bleed them. Sometimes you can get trapped air inside of them.

Also on most BBK there are TWO brake bleed screws. Make sure they bleed both with a pressure bleeder.

I bought a Motive Brake bleeder years ago... worth its weight in gold. Saved my butt so many times when bleeding brakes by myself.
Thanks for this Dac!
