Avid mechs w/ Avid SD7 levers...best way to adjust?
I've got avid BB7 mech disks with Avid Speeddial levers. The brakes are very new and probably not broken in yet.
One thing I want to do is decrease the amount of lever pull needed to lock out the brakes. Right now, I have to pull the lever to the bar to lock them up. It takes very little finger pressure to do this, just a lot of distance. The problem is that I need to move my second finger off the bar to make enough room for the lever to fully extend.
I'd like the pads to hit the disks after much less motion. I know I can adjust this but I'm not sure where. With canti's, I'd just adjust the barrel adjuster on the cable but the Avid manual clear states NOT to do this. So I assume I just need to turn the pad adjustment knobs a bit.
But...the Speeddials also have this little adjuster on the lever. It's not the barrel on the cable, but another smaller knob that's intended to change modulation. Should I adjust this instead of the brake pads?
Any advice would be appreciated. This is my first set of disks so I'm clueless.
