Hard part in bleeding these bikes is the brake line loop. Being it is a high point, it tends to rtap air and normal bleeding does not make the air travel along to the highest point Traditional bleeding works best when the master is below the caliper, and all fluid paths angle up or holding the master above so all fluid lines travel up and the aird will 'tiny bubbles' exit the port.
FYI, to see the port to understand it, remove the res. cover on your front brake. Very gently squeeze the lever, notice the small jet of fluid that comes up just before the lever becomes hard.
