You do need a bit of a gap either side of the disc or you will get some disc pad rub especially if you stand when giving it the beans up a hill.
How are you adjusting the pad at the other side? I can’t see any barrel adjuster at the calliper on the front. There is one further up the brake wire near the stem. This is turned all the way in, there is no slackness to the wire so there doesn’t seem much point turning it the other way? Thanks
I'm a trendy consumer. Just look at my wobbly bog brush using hovercraft full of eels
The outer pad is cable operated, so it's all about cable tension, that's the problem with mechanical disks, they don't self adjust so periodically as the pads wear, you'll have to dial the in the fixed inboard pad so it's as close to the disk as possible without rubbing.
For the outboard cable operated pad, you just have to put more tension on the cable so the pad sits closer to the disk as it wears.
The outer pad, I'd;
- Unscrew the cable retaining screw slightly to release all tension
Then adjust your barrel adjuster to the middle/50%
Get the cable operated pad as close as you can to the disk disk by pulling the cable through the cable retaining screw
Then tighten the cable screw back up
Then you can use the barrel adjuster for tiny fine tuning if needed
