I've been over the videos and have my pads adjusted very, very close to the rotors, but I'm still not getting any decent braking power. FWIW, I'm using SRAM Rival levers and it takes over half of my lever travel before there's any stopping power at all. Even when pulling the lever all the way to the bar, I'm not getting nearly enough power to lock up the wheels. The pads contact the rotor with the slightest pull of the levers, but I get absolutely no stopping power for the first half of the lever pull.
Anyone have a similar experience with the BB7 Road calipers? More importantly, what can I do to get decent braking performance from them (short of installing a Travel Agent to get more cable pull). Would a change/upgrade of pads help (it seems the pads have to be compressed quite a bit before they grab, so maybe a firmer pad would help)?
Thanks in advance,
