I prefer my brake levers engaging practically next to the bar. Adjusting them low like this has been easy on some brakes I've used in the past (X0, Hope Tech).

My new Demo came with a set of OEM Elixir 7 Trail brakes. The levers only have reach adjust.

I've dialled the reach adjust as far in as it goes. I've bled the brakes with the block, pistons pushed all the way in. Still, the levers are engaging too early in the stroke for my liking.

Does anyone know of any tricks to get them even closer to the bar?

Just out of curiosity, how do you get your brakes to engage that close to the bar without your other fingers getting in the way. Do you use one finger on the brakes, or more than one? If more, how many? I have to be honest with you, I like my brakes engaging further away from the bar. What you're missing is the contact point adjustment from the XO's. It's a nice touch. I like my XO's.
