Are there any "rules of thumb" for the amount of lever throw and lever placement on bars? I recently bled my brakes - so moved the levers and dialed out to maximum throw - was getting some arm pump on my last ride - more of an am/ light FR rider. Any suggestions would be appreciated...

I usually just go with whatever feels right to me but when using DC shifters/levers it said how to set it up which was kind of like putting your hand on the grip and extending your 2 fingers on the lever and it should be about in the middle of the 2 joints from the tip of your fingers. Er something like that but I forget exactly and Im too lazy to read up onit. :p

Havent experienced any "arm pump" or whatnot since doing that suggestion from Shimano.
