If I ever want to ride the track again it will take 20 minutes to convert it back…..

Anyone have a go-to glove? Currently have ones with loops to make taking them off pretty easy, don't...
Is it possible to get a good result straightening a derailleur cage? Not taking about the hanger here - that's easy enough to straighten with the correct tool.

The top cap was flogged so I replaced it, and I thought that doing a full bleed of everything (post internals + hose) and putting a new seal kit on it...

My rear brake keeps developing a bubble in the calliper, and I don’t know what’s causing it. On the bike it looks similar to this (i.e. bleed screw facing down):
