I have a set of new juicy 5 brakes (2006 I think). The trouble I'm having is that each brake engages at a different point in its lever travel. The rear is close enough to the bar that I can actually squeeze it almost right into the grip. I tried bleeding per Avid's instructions, using their bleed kit, but it didn't change anything. What I'd like is for both levers to engage at roughly the same point in their respective lever's travel, but also further out from the grips would be much better. Is there a way of getting this without having the pads dragging on the rotors?
Pics below are of each lever fully open, and closed to the point of initial engagement, so pads just touching the rotors.
