I've just got these brakes on my CX bike. The rear feels amazing, great bite etc. no dragging. The front on the other hand feels great but is dragging a sh!t load. I've centred the calliper, removed the pads and tried to reset the pistons and played with the bolts on the actuator arm to no avail. There looks to be a bleed screw, I think the reservoir may be overfilled but I'm not sure. I mostly work in road bikes so don't know too much about hydraulic systems. The levers I'm using are Ultegra 11 if that makes any difference, using stock TRP disks.

I have also emailed TRP asking for help but I need to get it all working as I have training and races this weekend and coming week. I would ask my local shop but that's me and these are the first HY/RD brakes we have had.

Yes, there is a bleeding screw.
push pistos-pads with a tirelever back
if thats not possible, there is to much "oil" inside

Elmar is right, you could try this..

pump the brake a few times, then open the bleed screw on the brake a 1/2 turn or so while lightly pulling the lever 'til you see a drop of fluid, then close the screw while holding the lever in that position. You can then do the same with the lever...

I haven't worked on the new Shimano hydro road levers, but bleeding Shimano usually lets you push fluid from the caliper up into a reservoir connected to the lever..
