Couple of quick ones for ya:
Despite pad contact dial and lever reach adjustment, when braking the lever almost reaches the handlebar (less than 1 inch). More so on the rear than the front brake. I prefer the brake lever to fully engage further out in its travel. The brakes have 200-300 miles on them, but it was like this from day 1.
1. Might there be air in the lines causing this?
2. Did it come from the factory "low" on fluid?
3. Any other causes or is this typical? Most other Avids I have used don't have this problem.
I have a race in 10 days and if I need to bleed I'll have to order the kit asap!
