I’m sure the damping adjuster is threaded at one end and will come out, but I just can’t figure out what’s stopping it and how to reach it. Irritating. It obviously clicks up and down nicely but stops at the extremes. The only logical route out would be through the bottom of the preload adjuster but I just can’t find the locking mechanism. Or then I’m just blind, thick or both. Looks like it will not get anodized then.
Other than that, I finished the final cleaning of the brake calipers. All squeaky clean and ready to go back in once all my parts arrive.
