I rarely use the in-line brake levers on my Cross bike. So i took them off.
Oops. Now-- how do i trim my brakes? Now i have no way of doing that! (I can't believe that i didn't anticipate that little issue. D'oh!) Upon reflection, i realize that i DO need some sort of barrel adjuster-- i've needed to adjust the cable pull during wet, muddy races that rapidly wear down the brake pads.
Any tips? Thanks.
