Right I'm in a right 2 and 8 here with my BB5's. They are not playing ball with me setting them up.

I have used the business card method on the front and wow! They work. However as for the rears, lever all the way in and am i stopping - hell no!!!

Anyone got a better method orrrrr can give me a hand. I'm Colchester based ... Well Clacton (hate to say it!)

Cheers

What is it doing/not doing?
Caliper should be set up first, pads aligned then cable sat, then caliper realignment

It seems to make contact but right towards the end of the lever movement of that makes sense

Okay.
Loosen the cable off, wind the pads in, tighten the cable back up.
Now loosen off the caliper, pull the lever so the pads touch the disc, re tighten the caliper.

I sorted it. It was me being a complete tool. I hadn't adjusted the inside caliper. Haha!

Thanks for your input though :)
