Yes. There is a long discussion about that problem on all Shimano brakes at a German forum (MTB-News.de). Lot's of people solved the problem with Putoline HPX 2.5. The problem is viscosity related I guesss.

Try Putoline HPX 2.5 as break fluid instead of Shimano mineral oil. It mostly solves the problem.

What happens when you turn the bike head around? Do you have to press the bleed-button afterwards?

Good and extensive review, but one of the best posts is missing: Vecnum Moveloc. It weights 560 grams with hardware and has 200 mm of extension, simple construction, full mechanical, no bleeding, ecc. My personal 1st place. :-D

You could try the Vecnum Moveloc 200. I have the same frame, same size and the Moveloc dropper post is fantastic! What's your HA with the fork set at 160 mm and the offset head set?

Yes, indeed :-/ Maybe it's simple not profitable for such a small company. In the meanwhile there are lot of similar bikes from other brands available.
