Air in my brake line

I took my new RadRover 6+ on it first ride and the rear brake went from working normally to having almost no effect. I did some research today and figured out that it is caused by air in the line. I don?t know if there is a problem that allowed air to enter the line or if it was improperly assembled. I?m wondering if I should take it into Rad or just bleed it and hope that fixes it.


So I took it into the Berkeley Rad store and got it fix under warranty. There was a screw that was damaged allowing air to enter the system. They replaced the the whole rear brake system I believe.
