    On most non-aero brake levers, there's an allen bolt or flathead screw accessible behind the brake cable, visible through the gap that opens when you pull on the brake lever. You'll often need to disconnect the brake cable from the brake, so it's loose and you can get your allen wrench or screwdriver around it.

    Yes I see that screw now.I guess I should disconnect the cable because it doesn't give you enough room to go around it.thanks
