What's your lever brake adjustment?
I'd like to know how do you fit your lever brake.
For the front, there is 8 positions. The 1st is close to the handle bar, so the 8th is farest.
For myself, I have the habit to be average at the 4th/5th step. The distance between the lever and the handlebar is enough for my hand and the brake power.
When I brought the bike for the 15000kms overhaul, the chief felt that the front brake needed to be bleed. To my mind, brakes were efficient.
But, when I recuparated it, it was worst than before and I had to remove the lever at 6th position to improve because if I stay on the 4th position the lever finish too close to the handle bar (just one finger between both)
If I push it several time it's quite better. Normally it's signifies that the bleed wasn't done good... The chief told me that is normal to put the lever far from the handlebar to have a good performance.
I'm quite pissed because he's not going to learn me how to brake! I always drive fast so I know how to do...
He equally changed the rear position tolding me that it was completely out of whack from the origin position. I use softly the rear brake and only when I really need it so in order to avoid to block it I put it quite low. The chief puted it high and I had at to modify it. I was always braking.
So what are your adjustments in order to know if I'm really stupid with mines?
