Is there a way to adjust the front brakes on my Specialized bicycle so I don't have to deflate the tire to remove it?
The bike has a side-pull brake with a lever that provides extra space between the pads. However, when fully open (shown below), there is just barely enough room for a fully inflated 25c tire. (It is quite a struggle to get the wheel on and off.)
I'd like my next set of tires to be slightly wider; but, I have a fork-mount roof rack, and I don't want to have to deflate/re-inflate the tire every time I put the bike on the rack.
