  1. Following on from my Brake Pads thread .........

    UK Forum (Including Scotland)
    Does anyone else have more brake lever travel than "normal" is it a trait of these 6 pot calipers? I've fitted new pads (the old ones were ok actually) and bleed them but the lever still comes a little to far back for my liking, it's the first bike I can't brake with two fingers as I trap my...
