Well - I had was on the phone to Swinnerton Cycles and they found the source of my spongy rear brake lever.

The Reservoir seal had failed.

They said that this is normally caused when a bike is left for a long period of time and not touched.My Enduro was not used for well over 12 months - its like brand new.

I noticed some fluid on the lever body after working on it last week, I put it down to some lube that must have ended up there.

So hopefully when they get the part in she will be back as new!

Anyone else had one fail?
