Sounds unusual after two weeks in secondary to still be bubbling once per minute.

What type beer, ale or lager, what yeast did you use, what temp did you ferment at, and how long was it in primary?

Racking to secondary often gets the yeast back in suspension and can cause 'another' fermentation cycle. That's mostly normal. Don't bottle until it is bubbling about 1 bubble per 90 sec or more. Yes, I believe that's the general concensous.

I just re-read your post: If you can SEE the tiny bubbles through the carboy walls, definatly do not bottle just yet. Give it another week and be careful to not siphon the trub off the bottom since you will most likely have a good bit from the second active fermentation.

Take a couple more hydro readings a few days apart and wait til it dosen't change.
