    adjusting DA brakes

    Looking for some quick tips for how to adjust Dura Ace brakes. I have noticed that when I swap my wheels out that sometimes the pads on one side touch the wheel. I can't seem to figure out how to adjust this so that i can "balance out" the brake positioning.

    I seem to recall seeing someone tighten or loosen screws to do this once...but i don't want to start twisting screws until i know what i'm doing. Thanks for any advice!

    there should be a small phillips head on the left side of the caliper. use this to adjust the balance. another good trick is to squezze the claipers onto the rim and hold the brake closed when closing the quick release on the brake. helps keep it centered.
