Good tutorial on calibrating/fixing my brakes?
I have disc brakes, and lately, I've had to press the brake lever almost to the end before I feel the brake actually working.
I"m a beginner, so I'm looking for an easy-to-follow tutorial/video that explains how to calibrate these brakes, or change them if necessary.
Depends on the brand and model. Are they hydraulic? Youtube probably has vids. I would use the search terms "how to adjust xxxx brakes" and "change pads on xxxx brakes". They might also need a bleed if they are hydraulic, but I would check the pads first.

then as mentioned you can do a search on "how to adjust bike brake levers range"
and see a video for that specific item.

that is good one to see.
