Default Brake Bleed Issue

Two years ago, I installed speed bleeders on all four brake lines.

Yesterday, I bled the brakes without problem. However, I notice that the brake pedal still travels about 1/4 of the way down before engaging. There is NO spongy feeling and the brakes otherwise work fine. Is there a problem and should I re-bleed the brakes?

Thanks!

If rear drum brakes, try adjusting shoe clearance.

Thanks.

I forgot to add that the front discs bled a lot and easily, but the rear bled about 1/4 as much.
