Brake Lever Adjustment

The brake levers should be placed on a straight line emanating from ones shoulder. A common problem is sharp bend at the wrist, it will cause wrist pain.

Example of properly aligned brake levers: ( the levers should allow the wrist rest in a neutral position, notice no wrist bend )
