Adjusting Tektro R40 for wider tire
#1
I have Tektro R40 dual pivot caliper brakes (as provided on my 2011 Trek)

Recently I decided to use a slightly wider tire (going from 23 to 25)

When I try to mount the wheel, the gap between the brake pads is not large enough to accommodate the larger tire

I could deflate the tire a bit and get it to slide through, but I would like to adjust the brake to accommodate the wider tire without doing so, so I could remove the front wheel for travelling

I have googled adjusting this brake but am still confused with what has to be done

Can you help ?

THANKS
