    Tightening 105 Levers

    I recently purchased my first road bike in years and it's equipped with '07 105 running gear. The right lever is shifting inwards over time from the pressure of me changing up to the big ring so I need to tighten it up slightly (I know not too much so it can move in a crash). The question is - where the heck is the screw/key to do it? I've pulled back the hood at the bar end but can't see it, I've pulled the brake on to see if there's a screw inside but nope... I'm thinking it could either be buried under the bar tape (I can see the bracket through a small gap, or higher up on the lever itself but I don't want to risk breaking, ripping, wrecking anything looking in the wrong place so can anyone tell me where it is?

    Sorry to ask what I'm sure is an embarrassing newbie question...

    on the outboard side of the brake hood you will see a little indent just above the rubber hood. If you slide a 5 mm allen wrench down in there you will find the bolt.

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
