The first two things that come to mind are moving the contact dial in the opposite direction of the arrow and replacing your pads. But really you should be able to take it back to the shop(s) that did the bleeds and they should help you out.

You ever figure it out?

I had this problem more than once... I actually did just last week. I ended up seeing a video where a guy commented that it was the brake line on his that that had an internal tear so it wasn't holding pressure correctly.

I just replaced the brake cable on mine this past weekend, but haven't had the chance to ride the bike yet. I'll report back after I can get a ride in on some extended steep stuff to let you know if that was the fix.

3 rides in after replacing the brake cable and the brakes are working as they should be. It could be that I had to use new fluid after swapping the cable out, but I am just about convinced that the problem was the brake line itself. Happy with my Code RSCs all over again.
