    Brakes leaked a little, do I need to bleed?

    I've got a Trek 6300 with Juicy 3 disk brakes. Stupidly I opened them up and a little (2-3 drops) ran out. Now when I pump the brake it closes the wheel enough to stop the tire from spinning with no one on the bike, but not enough to stop the bike with me on it. Do I need to do a full bleed (as shown on many youtube videos) or is there another way? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Best Regards

    You may not need a full bleed but you certainly need to bleed them to remove the air that you let in. Depending on what video you're talking about some or all of what they do will be required.
    Model airplanes are cool too!.....

    Thanks BC, I was afraid of that. I've got to pick up a kit and will let you know how it goes.
