Hello

Quick question around adjustment of these disc brakes. They stop fine with a good amount of leverage but there is a cm or so of free movement at the lever where the pads move but do not make any contact. I find there is very little modulation with these (and seems worse than when I first got them). Changed one set of pads for the superstar sinistered ones but makes little difference.

Can you adjust how close the pads 'rest' so they are as close as possible to the rotors? The levers are not squidge and really don't want to go down the bleeding route.

    just use them they will come right. (increasing the levers away from the bar for a while can also speed them settling).

    but if you have to do some thing lever the bike overnite with the brakes applied. rubber bands can be good.

    Will give that a go tonight. Maybe next pad replace I may upgrade to shimano's if they don't improve!
