I’m a little stuck here. I want to center my front hydraulic brake but I don’t see an adjustment to do it.
On my analog bike with two piston brakes there is a screw to center the caliper on the rotor.
On the cheap single piston brakes on this e-bike I don’t see that.
Do I just loosen the two Allen bolts clamping the caliper to the mounting bracket and squeeze the brake lever to find the natural center and clamp the brake lever then tighten the two Allen’s?
I assume that with a single piston I will have a fixed pad and a live pad so I will want minimal clearance to the fixed pad to minimize rotor flex?
Does this sound right?
