    Avid CR adjustment

    Added a set of Avid CR's to the 29er last week and had them installed by my LBS as they did it for no charge because I purchased from them but here is the problem.

    The back brake is fine and requires very little movement to engage but the front has some play before it hooks up. I thought well I will adjust the barrel "Pad Engagement" adjuster but it's maxed out.

    Looked through all the information I could find but could not find out anything about fixing this issue. How do I re-set the brakes so I have some adjustment on the barrel?

    Rotating the barrel clockwise will shorten lever action and vice versa.

    If thereīs not enough adjustment, Iīd recommend bleed the brake according to tutorial from SRAM (avaliable at their web page)

    Thanks BMN

    That's what I expected would need to be done. Oh well back to the LBS as I do not have the tools needed to bleed them.
