    How to adjust Shimano M485 disc brakes to a firmer lever feel

    I'm a complete noob with hyrdo disc brakes, all my previous bikes ran V-brakes which were easy to adjust to make them grip harder and stiffen up the lever a bit, all I did was tighten the cable or play with the adjusters.

    How do I tighten up the feel of my Shimano M485 disc brakes so the lever feels firmer and brakes harder?

    Bleed them or have a bike shop bleed them. Shimanos are pretty simple to bleed, here's the relevant technical document.
