Leaking 2007 Juicy Carbons

OK, maybe it was a mistake allowing my LBS cut and bleed the brakes on my new build.
I went down there twice and both times when I compress the lever, fluid comes out the lines. I have some compression fittings that came with the brakes but they said they didn't need them. I'm bringing the fittings to them on Monday and they are giving it another go. I'm really hoping that this was the problem.

Keep working with them until the brakes are the way YOU want them.

If they try to charge you for multiple bleeds clock the snotty mechanic in the pecker, grab your bike, and ride off into the sunset.

Actually, just the opposite. They have already talked about a partial/full refund once the job is finished.
