Just want to know how much brake lever travel you have before the brakes grab. I seem to like mine with about 1/4 travel. How about you?

Me too. But it seems my bike shop always adjusts them so it grabs half way in...............

I like them to be about 1/3-1/2 way in. I ride with my finger hook on the rear brake but not engaging. It seems to be the most comfortable any less my hands get tire and too much the levers have to travel too far to get usable feel.

I change the engagement point a bit from time to time.
