Okay I’ve been fiddling with the brakes for awhile. The issue is that when I got them (not too long ago) the braking power was too hard, as soon as I pull on the brake lever, it would completely stop the wheel and I really didn’t want that because it could throw me off if I ever use it.
So I was trying to make it so that maybe the brakes can just slow me down gradually and assist the braking I’m doing with my foot (for steep hills and such). I tried unscrewing some stuff and it doesn’t seem to do anything until I accidentally unscrewed the (forgot what it’s called…where the brake line from the brake lever meets the disc brake itself) and some oil came gushing out. I quickly tightened it again to prevent more oil from coming out. Now, I don’t know why, but when I pull the brake lever all the way (whereas before I would just pull it a little and it would stop the wheel completely), it now only sorta slows the wheel down. I’d be happier of I knew that it was on purpose, but it was on accident and I tried poking around there, but it did nothing.
Tried googling and youtubing and it wasn’t clear enough or the info jumbled up so a little help.
There’s like a star shaped screw (torx screw) but I don’t have one that big so I can’t try it but wanted to make sure if that’s it before buying something to open it up.
I’m not bike/unicycle savvy like you guys.
