I have adjusted my brakes so the pad hits the rim where my fingers have the best grip.
As the leverage of the brake and lever has gotten greater, the pad to rim gap has to be set closer
because of the nature of MA,
there is more hand lever motion, for the movement of the pad towards the rim.
Example : what makes V brakes work, is the pairing of High MA caliper and Low MA lever.
Aero brake levers are Higher MA so the caliper has to have a Lower one.
