Nice bike! just went through some brake woo's of my own with my gen1.. the brakes are very very difficult to bleed! but they are much better now! not like the new bike but will stop you with two fingers no problem!
Start with a bleed, burp the master as well. go for a ride (shake it up a little ;) ).
then use rope or string (not elastic) and tie the leaver so that it's firm, this will force the bubbles up to the reservoir, I can't say I fully understand why but it worked!
next day my leavers were much firmer and the brakes worked well.
