    How does the "tool-less reach adj." work?

    Ok, I see that I screw this in our out on my Avid Elixir 7 SLs to bring the lever closer to the bar. Fine. Why does it get mushier the closer it gets? How does this actually work?

    Thanks,

    It does what you think it does. They shouldn't get mushier as you bring it in, might need a bleed.

    Yes, my title was not written well....I know what it does, just not how it works. I bet I just need to bleed them.
