    Noob brake adjustment question after new rotors...

    I just installed new Alligator windcutters on the bike, replaced G3's. Anyway after install and riding the bik the engagement point is very different from before, brakes have the same power, actually feel more modulation, but I'm pulling the lever allot further before they engage.

    Is it as simple as just readjusting the lever?

    Is the Alligator rotor so thin it would take that much more brake for engagement?

    If the caliper is thinner, you may need to bleed them and introduce more fluid into the system.

    I'll see how much the shop charges for a fluid change and bleed and decide if I want to do it myself.
    Thanks!

    Did you mean rotor?
