have a problem with the alignment/centering of ultegra brakes on an aegis aro svelte i just purchased. when applying the brakes they actually seem to move the rim over a small amount (perhaps a 1/32") versus centering. i have tried to recenter the brake assembly by loosing the brake/frame attachment bolt but still can't seem to get the results i am looking for. i noticed on the left arm there is a small allen bolt adjustment facing upwards. is this for centering purposes? oh and the wheels are perfectly dished. thanks for any input.

yeah, it's that little tiny allen bolt. You get it close with the frame attachment bolt, then fine adjust with the little tiny one.
