Hi Howard. Thanks for that. I don't hang the bike. It sits inside the garage overnight, and in the office at work during the day. There is definitely no fluid leaks anywhere, so maybe a poor bleed? That would be good news if so, means I won't have to go through the agro of sending parts back.
If the issue has returned twice after being bled at the same shop - I would take it to another shop, just to rule that out.
That said, I found I had similar experience with a rear disc brake on a MTB, which was basically due to shit pads, making me drag the brake more and more, eventually glazing the pads leading to no stopping power. So I would also have a look at the pads and give them a good working over with sandpaper and see if that makes any difference
