Anyone have any experience with Giants MPH hydraulic disc brakes?? Just got a bike with a set and am
trying to figure how to adjust the caliper. I see the outer brake pad can be adjusted off the
handle, but the disc is rubbing the inner pad and I see no adjustment where I can center the
caliper. Any help appreciated...Mike

Yup just what Mr.B said........washers.

You say you just got the bike, maybe they need to be run in before you go adjusting.

I second the washers. You need to get your hands on some 0.2 mm washers. Just a word of warning
those brakes aren't exactly crash friendly, so take care of the levers, its where you will get most
trouble form them.

Thanks, I never considered washers, but sounds like a good idea. By looking at the brakes I figured
they werent crash friendly. The brake fluid reservoir just sort of sticks out there. Thanks
