Hello, I'm getting back into biking after (Don't laugh) about 25 years off
In my fifties now, and a LOT has changed since my Schwinn Continental days
I want to try and make a good first buy for myself
As example, I have been looking at a Trek 7.2FX (Around $500 is my budget for 1st buy in case I don't stick with it)
I like it but have a problem with the brake levers
I have large hands and the levers pinch my other fingers when I use a two-finger approach
The mechanic says the levers reach are not adjustable
The literature on them (Shimano EF51), says they are adjustable?
Soooo, why is the mechanic telling me he can't adjust them?
The brakes are V brakes if that matters
Would another type of brakes be better for me in regards to having levers farther away from my fingers?
And if so, could they be switched out and used with the levers already on the 7.2FX?
