It allows for wear of the pads and heating of the fluid. Not having the piston go back past the port on the actuation side of the unit will lead to (eventually) the brake losing all power.


It's still not a problem. Just open out the brake quick releases from time to time and give the levers a few squeezes. I haven't lost any power on the brakes and I've been running them since October. They're working just fine.

Yeah. that'll sort the issue.
it's not ideal, but it is a functional workaround.

I made the switch last night.

Released the leavers, then set the TRP to spec. When I engage the levers correctly and tighten up the barrel adjustor the brake feels good.

I only use this bike for a ~52km commute, so every day I'll release the lever and give them a pump.

This isn't ideal, but it saves me making some more expensive changes later.

Thanks!

Yes, if you can get enough travel the brakes are very good. Don't ignore replacing the housing with a compressionless option, it made a surprisingly positive difference for me.
