comment Is it normal that the Abus Bordo folding lock rattles?
Thank you. Interesting, I contacted them, and they offered no such thing. What did you say to them and how?

Nailed it! I will check those out (I tried #1 without luck)

Sounds like a plan. While this could just be anecdotal evidence, it's unfortunate to hear that the newer version of the lock (likely not actually any more secure, just more padding) rattles more

Does yours look more like this? I used the velcro first, and then screws (velcro was annoying as it wasn't as strong, and the strap would rub against my leg)

comment What is lever throw and cable slack?
Great, thank you! Avid's advice seems to be contradictory: when it comes to adjusting the outward pad, they recommend a certain ratio with the inner one (see updated question) — yet, then, for achieving a certain "lever throw", they suggest adjusting the outward pad some more, which will likely move away from the ratio. What am I to make of it if I want my brakes to be sharp, with little lever throw?
