That bolt-looking thing with the 13mm hex head, is actually just a "plug", keeping the crud out of the adjuster screw. It backs out as a bolt would; nothing tricky, it just uncovers the adjuster. >> I should be aware of ? > Not really - pretty straightforward. Agreed. Pull the piston back with that adjuster screw, rather than trying to push it in as with many other types of calipers. Adjust it to tight, back it off maybe 1/2 turn (the adjuster screw, that is) so the wheel rotates freely, and you're golden. Put some anti-seize on that plug that covers the adjustment screw, or you'll be swearing at it in a few years when you play the game again. Dave Hinz
