I just bought a Cannondale Taurine with Avid Juicy 5's. The brake works fine but needs tightening of its grip on the rotor. The problem I have is the Avid lever doesn't have a dial on it for tension control unlike my previous brakes. It seems to have many screws on it and I'm sure one of these will do it, I just don't know which one. The bike didn't come with and Avid manual so I was hopeing someone might be able to help.I've been told by the shop that they are pre bled before shipping. Any suggestions would be apprevciated.

    manual can be downloaded from the Sram manual. linky in the tech links sticky above,

    all you can adjust is the lever reach. The pads will need to bed in. Up to 50 applications.
