Hi Guys,

Quite new to all this but I'll try to explain my question with the correct terminology.

I recently bought a 13 Incline Gamma which uses Avid DB3 hydraulic disc brakes.

I'm trying to work out whether my levers have Contact Point adjustment.. and if so, how I'd make any adjustments.

I've looked at the manufacturer site but it's not helping me much www.sram.com/avid/products/db3

Can you help?

    Only reach adjust.

    Ah ok... if I wanted to reduce the lever travel before the brakes bite in would I have to start looking at bleeding them or is there some other adjustment that I can look at?
