The last few times that I rode all of the sudden it felt like i was riding into a head wind then the bike would free up and roll smooth without resistance. It is happening more often. I noticed when it happens the brake lever is rock hard, when it frees up the lever softens up. Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be the mastercylinder is bad?

I have a similar issue, but I'm not noticing it like you. I feel a slightly rougher feedback from the front suspension. I haven't totally figured it out yet but it seems like if I cruise at loser speeds in lower gears when I go to use the front brake it's soft (to the floor so to speak). If I pump it it comes back just fine and when I use it the next time it is usually just fine. in a car I would think this meant a vacuum problem such as a back hose.
Does that sound like your issue in anyway?

No mine is like the front brake is applied the let off. The problem is i'm not touching the lever. Yours sounds like it might be air in the system.
