Hi, i have recently started using a bike with 5800 brake levers. I find the movment quite loose compare to my campag veloce on other bike. The brake calipers and close to rim and cable properly tensioned, but just some there is a looser feel to the movement, can the spring that moves the levers be adjusted at all, or is there any other mehtod to tighten up their feel?

    Likely a cable issue, rather than a lever issue. Make sure the cable is nice and tense
