brake lever

Decided to post this here because it pertains to any bike.

Was doing a little maint. this weekend and decided to look at the adjustment on my front brake lever. Have never given it a second thought in the year I have owned the bike but after reading and posting in meatwad's "brake pressure" thread I decided I would give it a look. Turns out I was able to fairly easily touch the bars with the level. Turned the screw in a few turns and now what I thought were good brakes are great. Have to watch myself now cause I was so used to pulling the lever so far.
Just thought I would throw that out there for the folks, like me, that neglect these little things sometimes. Take a look and make sure yours is adjusted correctly.
